‘Glow’ Showrunners Carly Mensch & Liz Flahive On Comfortable Leotards, Season 2 & “Eerie” ’80s Political Parallels
In creating a show about women’s wrestling, Glow creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch were armed with inspiration from the 2012 documentary Glow: The Story of The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, which documented the sport in the ’80s, and the ability to craft hilarious dramedy with can’t-stop-watching characters. With Alison Brie in the lead role, a lot of spandex, numerous headbands and more than a little hilarity, Flahive and Mensch’s Netflix series became a smash hit.

Heading into Season 2, Flahive and Mensch discuss writing well-rounded women, how they made everyone comfortable in a leotard, and how the cast became next-level wrestling experts.

Did you ever anticipate that this show would be so immediately successful?

Carly Mensch: We’re not aware of the impact yet. We’re in the bubble of making it and working and we don’t get any numbers.
