Reuniting With ‘GLOW’ Creators, and Her Experience

Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch (GLOW), the Apple TV+ eight-episode anthology series Roar tells standalone stories that feature ordinary women in unexpected, unique and different circumstances, spanning a variety of genres. In “The Woman Who Solved Her Own Murder,” we learn from the murder victim herself (Alison Brie), what led to the end of her life. During this 1-on-1 interview with Collider, Brie talked about how strongly she responds to the unique voice in the work of Flahive and Mensch, why she got so excited about this project, the experience of playing a character who couldn’t directly interact with anyone, getting closure in a 30-minute story, getting a bit of a mini-GLOW reunion, and the heartbreak of not being able to finish telling that story the way that they’d planned and hoped. She also talked about her love for the movie Clue, and getting to work with some of the film’s cast on

To start off with a silly and fun unrelated question, your husband said recently that one of your favorite movies is Clue, and I am also firmly in the die-hard Clue club. If you were ever in a remake of clue, which character would you want to play? Oh, God. I think that my whole life, I have fantasized about playing Miss Scarlet. Mrs. White is an amazing character, but like who could do it better than Madeline Kahn? It feels impossible. I actually worked with the actress who played Miss Scarlet (Lesley Ann Warren), in the original. She played Gillian Jacobs’s mom in Season 6 of Community. And Colonel Mustard (Martin Mull) was in the episode too. Isn’t it horrible that I’m only referring to them as their Clue characters, these iconic actors? But that day, on the Community set in Season 6, I was like, “Colonel Mustard and Miss Scarlet are here? And they’re Gillian’s parents?” It was a surreal moment, for sure

That’s amazing. Well, I’m guessing that when you do something like this, and you’re reteaming with folks that you’ve worked with so closely before, like Carly Mensch and Liz Flahive, you don’t have to audition. So, when this came your way, what got you most excited about it? Do you get nervous, when they come to you with something like this, that you’ll hate it? No, I definitely don’t get nervous about that. I love Liz and Carly so much, and I just had the most incredible time working with them on GLOW and they never disappoint. I felt like, every episode of GLOW, I was so blown away by the unique voice that they share when they write together and the different themes that they wanted to examine, even on GLOW, in terms of the female experience. And this takes all of that to the next level. So, I’m nothing but excited when I get a call from Liz and Carly like, “Hey, we’ve got something for you.” It’s those excited flutters. But this one was especially cool because there were so many other

It was heartbreaking for fans, the way that show ended, so I can’t imagine what it must have been like for the cast and creative team. How hard was that to, on the one hand, have three seasons of this great show that you can be really proud of, but on the other hand, not get the opportunity to finish telling the story the way that it had been planned? It was really hard. It was especially hard because it all happened during COVID, when everybody was quarantining away from one another. The show was so physical. It was really about all of us connecting on a physical level and really feeling like a sports team. We were so in it together. So, to go through the show’s cancellation apart, and extremely apart, just felt really strange. It’s part of what made working on this so great because I got that closure that I couldn’t really get when we first learned of GLOW’s cancellation. I got to be back on set with Liz and Carly and Chris, and also a ton of people from our crew – the wardrobe department, hair and makeup, and sound. Anya Adams, who directed the episode, directed an episode in Season 3 of GLOW. So, there was a lot of joy and excitement, just to be reunited with my buds and my family from GLOW. It did give me some catharsis there
