I saw this story a bit earlier and thought I would share. Sounds like it could be decent. I'm sure I'll at least give it a chance once it comes out.

Wonder if they will try to have any of the originals, like Lisa Moretti or Jeanne Basonne (Hollywood)? The latter's little sideline venture might be a bit problematic...

If she were up for doing it, Moretti would be a good person to have on the show, in some role. She always came across well in angles, in the WWE and she was a great interview subject for the Kayfabe Commentaries Timeline series.

Betting they're hiring actors they can teach a little rasslin' to not rasslers who might slip on a banana peel and learn to act.

Well, it's supposed to be a comedy about someone learning to wrestle for GLOW, rather than the skit/match format of the original.

Plus that's what they did in the first place...

So long from the Sunshine State!

Hollywood has kept herself in fine shape, saw some of those "sideline" videos you speak of. The carpet at least matches the drapes.

I also saw that Jenji Kohan, of Weeds, is a producer, so the sideline might not be much of an issue, based on stuff that went on on that series.

I did see on IMDB that Basonne did quite a bit of stunt work.

Maybe this could herald the relaunch of Wrestlicious.

The producers of this venture generally tend to set their goals a little higher than the average bear. This isn't gonna be a rehash of Hee Haw rasslin'. It's an Emmy-bait examination of Hee Haw rasslin'.

In addition to "Weeds," Jenji created "Orange is the New Black" and was a writer/producer for "Gilmour Girls," "Sex & The City," and "Will & Grace." She has 10 Emmy nominations and won one. She's elite.
