We here at Mr. Skin are edging, I mean, on the edge of our seat, waiting for the premiere of the new Netflix series G.L.O.W. on June 23rd. The 10-episode show comes from executive producer Jenji Kohan. If this name sounds familiar to you, it's because Jenji is also the mastermind behind Skin Hall of Fame favs Orange is the New Black and Weeds! Throw in the facts that G.L.O.W. is about female wrestlers (which can be seen in skin-tight outfits in the new teaser trailer below,) and that the cast is reported to have signed nudity agreements, and you've got yourself four long months of waiting!

It looks like WOOD things come to those who wait because G.L.O.W. features sexy actresses including Betty Gilpin and Alison Brie. Skinterestingly, Betty Gilpin went very nude on Nurse Jackie, which was produced by G.L.O.W.'s creator Liz Flahive. Hopefully, Gilpin plus Flahive will once again equal boobs. Seeing Alison Brie's rack might be more difficult as she's not a player in the nudity game so far. It's a damn shame considering she's adorable and has an awesome bod. 

HOWEVER. I want to point out that Taylor Schilling's first and only nude appearance was on the Kohan-created Orange is the New Black. Like OITNB, G.L.O.W. centers around a group of women made to exist in close quarters due to unforeseen circumstances. The series is inspired by the 1980's television series Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. Glitz, glam, grit, and gams combined to create humorous, slapstick wrestling featuring well, gorgeous ladies.

Many of the women from the original G.L.O.W. had aspirations of stardom in real life and hoped to use the show, for as silly as it was, as a vehicle for Hollywood stardom. The Netflix adaptation uses this premise as a way to assemble a rag tag group of women who have more or less come to this random place in their lives as a means of escape, not an end. Alison Brie is a failing actress who never thought she'd be involved in female wrestling - something completely foreign to her up until this point. None of this is too dissimilar to OITNB, and the show sounds ripe for nudity. If Jenji can bring Shilling out of her shell, hopefully she can do the same for Brie!
