Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin Tease 'More Intense' Wrestling Scenes for 'Glow' Season Two!

The cast of Netflix’s GLOW are getting us prepped for their second season!

The stars of the show Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Chris Lowell, Kia Stevens, Sunita Mani, Rebekka Johnson, Kate Nash, Kimmy Gatewood, Britt Baron and Marianna Palka all got together last night (November 29) to attend SAG-AFTRA Foundation Conversations screening of GLOW held at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Screening Room in Los Angeles.

“[the preparation this time around] was more intense, because we picked up where we left off,” Betty recently expressed about season two (via TV Line). “I mean, I just had a wrestling match with a character that won’t be named, and a week later, I still feel like my soul was in a five-car pileup accident – and it feels amazing.”

The show will return next year with ten more new episodes, the streaming service announced back in August.


FYI: Alison is wearing a Tory Burch sweater.

Get to Know Marianna Palka with These 10 Fun Facts (Exclusive)

Marianna Palka‘s new film Bitch is out now in theaters and on demand and we caught up with the actress/writer/director to learn more about her!

The 36-year-old filmmaker, who also stars on the Netflix series GLOW, shared 10 Fun Facts that you probably don’t know about her. Check them out:

  • 1. I’m a master diver and could teach you how to scuba dive, as well as take you on a night dive.
  • 2. When Bitch was shooting I actually got the acting job on Glow and so I got to do two projects at once. Jaime King was superbly supportive during that chapter as was Jason Ritter. It’s nice when your friends believe in you 100% of the time. We had to laugh!
  • 3. The King of Scotland, Sean Connery, gave me the directing award when I was 24 in Edinburgh for my first Sundance feature film (about human intimacy), Good Dick, which people say is the only film with only one female character, which passes the Bechdel Test.
  • 4. Luckily I’ve touched the stone of destiny in Scotland and it made me a better artist to touch it! Light shot out of it! It makes you giggle cause it’s so mega.
  • 5. I have so much respect it makes me smile, for my niece and her friends, in Glasgow, I’m not worried about the future ’cause it is in their hands and it reassures me because I find that generation to be much greater than ours; and any generation that has come before. We are all #stillyes for #scottishindependence #saoralba. If you wanna know more read the wee blue book. ☺

Jaime King Premieres Sundance Film 'Bitch' at LA's Next Fest!

Jaime King walks the red carpet at the premiere of her movie Bitch at the 2017 Sundance Next Fest on Saturday (August 12) at the Theater at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles.

The actress was joined by her co-star and director Marianna Palka along with the film’s young stars Rio Mangini, Brighton Sharbino (with her sister Saxon), Kingston Foster, and Jason Maybaum.

Bitch is the provocative tale of a woman (Palka) who snaps under crushing life pressures and assumes the psyche of a vicious dog. Her philandering, absentee husband (Jason Ritter) is forced to become reacquainted with his four children and sister-in-law (King) as they attempt to keep the family together during this bizarre crisis.

Also pictured inside: Jaime recently getting a private behind-the-scenes look at Crateful, LA’s leading meal delivery service, through a cooking class with Chef Luciano Pellegrini.

FYI: Jaime is wearing a Jason Wu dress and Malone Souliers shoes at the premiere.
