Alison Brie has signed on to another Netflix show in addition to voicing Diane Nguyen on BoJack Horseman.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brie is a popular actress right now, with casting agents trying to get her signed to comedies all through pilot season. She must like the streaming service or the role. GLOW is based on the real story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, a 1980s women’s wrestling league in Los Angeles.


The 10-episode series was created by Orange is the New Black’s Jenji Kohan, featuring showrunners Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, who worked on Homeland and Orange Is the New Black, respectively. Brie is slated to play Ruth, a failed actress who is electrified with new life when she enters the ring. I am very much looking forward to the costuming for this production.
