Alison Brie is back in GLOW, or the Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling, as Ruth Wilder, the once out of work actress living in LA who finds unexpected success in the glitter and spandex-laden world of women’s wrestling.

In addition to starring in, Emmy nominated actress Natasha Lyonne (Orange Is the New Black) also co-created the comedy-drama, Russian doll.

Only trouble is she must relive the same evening all over again…
