Earlier this week, it was announced that Community’s Alison Brie would be joining the new series from Orange is the Black Creator Jenji Kohan about female wrestling, GLOW. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, comedian Marc Maron is joining the show as a series regular.

Maron will reportedly play Sam Sylvia, a washed-up Hollywood executive with a "complicated history with women" who must now use his role within the industry to power 14 of them to stardom. There’s not too much more information about Maron’s role in the series, but he will be in a series regular and appear in all 10 episodes, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

GLOW follows 14 amateur female wrestlers in the 1980’s Los Angeles. It’s based on a group of real enthusiasts and actors who saw GLOW — Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling — as a last chance opportunity to make it big in Hollywood. There isn’t a premiere date for the series as of this time, but it’s expected to debut sometime in 2017.
