GLOW is coming back. Maybe. Hopefully. Got this bulletin from my MySpace friend, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling official MySpace:

From: GLOW is casting!

Date: Aug 8, 2008 2:29 PM
Body: The producers of the new GLOW show will be doing some "pre-casting" interviews before the end of August in the Los Angeles area. If you are interested in being considered you must be over the age of 18 and if you have not already sent pictures/links and your bio to us here on MySpace please do so and be sure to include a phone number.

Other than that, you do not need any previous pro wrestling experience (though a basic athleticism is a plus), however, previous experience will not count against you.

Good luck to all!

I should hope previous wrestling experience won't count against them. I've never been clear on whether that's true for the Diva Search or not.

What I wanna know is, are they also looking to cast a new David McLane?

Considering the big time failure of the original GLOW and other more recent female orginizations, plus the attention the divas and the knockouts have gotten on TV lately, makes me think that re-making GLOW is totally pointless. I give it a good four or five months to last, just slightly longer than WSX.

He's still working on the second season of WOW.

I wonder how well the Triple Crown of Polo turned out.

Hell, WEW has been around for a long time, why not bring back GLOW?

I'm already in line to read her blog post about it!

Wow, you're more optimistic than I am. I'd be shocked if they ever even got on TV in the first place.

Are there any female Ws who are willing to audition for this and report on what happens?


Oh well. - Blog, podcasts, comics, and more!

That's interesting, as I read a recent Meltzer page about the former Mountain Fiji losing a ton of weight. And now we have a possible redo of GLOW. Then again, I thought that Babe The Farmer's Daughter owned the rights to the name and video library. Perhaps she sold the rights?

Either way, I'll give it a watch. It can't be worse than most of WOW.

Did GLOW feel like more of a sitcom to anybody else?

It was probably more like a sketch show, I'm thinking Hee-Haw (but the later, terrible Hee-Haw, not the early, amazing Hee-Haw.) Maybe a little above MadTV?

The one thing I most remember about GLOW was how their announcer always seemed to be giving the play-by-play a second ahead of the action. Always funny to hear him say "oh, and the clothesline" and *then* see the clothesline.

There was "Life in the GLOW House", which was apparently McLane's answer to Fuji Vice, only instead of using good workers that could cut decent promos - they were using barely competent workers (credit where due, I don't recall anyone breaking their neck) that had no promo skills whatsoever.

And I have to think whoever came up with the concept for "Big Brother" watched this run of GLOW.

Doesn't Hollywood still do some 'wrestling' work??

I used to watch GLOW many years ago on the lesser known Sky channels. The only one who really got into wrestling mainstream afterwards was Tina Ferrari AKA Ivory.

Yeah, the thing about AAA is, it's not very good. A fair amount of the wrestlers seem to be there more to have sex with Antonio Pena than to be good at wrestling.
