ALISON BRIE has reflected on how her Neflix series Glow, about female wrestlers, has resonated in the wake of the Me Too scandal.

The actress, who also starred in Community and Mad Men, told a press conference in Rome  that the stories the show tells are “the stories that people are telling in the Me Too movement.”

She added: “All these things that are coming to light are things that people have been saying behind closed doors for years in our industry.”

The series tells the story of the ‘Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling’ on the US circuit in the 1980s.

The first series was released on the streaming platform in June last year to rave reviews.

And today it was announced that the second series would debut on June 29.

“It is a perfect time for our show and again it makes me very grateful as an actress going to work every day,” Brie said.

“It is really wonderful to be working on the set of Glow while all of this has been happening because we are surrounded by women in front of the camera and behind the camera and women at the top making decisions.”

“It makes a big difference to feel really comfortable, to be seen and heard on set as a woman, to have ownership over yourself and it does make the story, not more important, but just right in line with us trying to highlight women who are empowered themselves and trying to make their voices heard and figure out who they are in a world that wants to put them in a box.”

The series also stars Betty Gilpin, Kate Nash and Marc Maron.

Two Scots also make up the cast, with Gayle Rankin and Marianna Palka playing ‘Shiela the She-Wolf’ and ‘Vicky the Viking’ respectively.
