Summer is just around the corner, and there is an explosion of TV shows coming straight at you. About 5 - 10 years ago, summertime was when TV networks would slow down a bit and maybe experiment a little by airing shows that would keep the lights on while reserving the best stuff for fall, and cable TV went on to take advantage of this by debuting more new shows as alternatives. Nowadays, the rules have changed and there are many new and returning shows that are coming out this summer on network, cable, and streaming. Below is a list of 4 new TV shows premiering this June that you should be watching.
Glow is an American drama-comedy TV show by Carly Mensch and Liz Flahive. It is set in 1980s Los Angeles and revolves around fictional characters based on the gimmicks of the 1980's syndicate women's professional wrestling known as the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW). The story starts off when Ruth Wilder, (Played by Allison Brie), an actress who struggles to find work suddenly receives an invitation to audition in an emerging professional wrestling along with 12 other women in a promotional event known as GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling).
