'Baby-Sitters Club': Alicia Silverstone, Mark Feuerstein Join Netflix Series Adaptation "Clueless" star Alicia Silverstone and "Royal Pains" alum Mark Feuerstein have joined the cast of Netflix's "Baby-Sitters Club" series adaptation, the streaming service announced on Tuesday. Silverstone will play Elizabeth Thomas-Brewer, the mother of Kristy Thomas and love interest of Watson Brewer, played by Feuerstein.

"GLOW" alum Rachel Shukert is set to serve as showrunner, with Lucia Aniello attached to direct the single-camera comedy.

The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are about to hang up their boots after one more run of shows. Netflix has renewed its '80s-set dramedy GLOW for a fourth and final season.

The third season dropped last month and shifted the action from Los Angeles (where the wrestlers had their own TV show) to Las Vegas, where they became an attraction at a casino. Without giving anything away, the finale pointed to another major shift in the dynamic, and while it wasn't exactly a cliffhanger ending, it's good to know one of Netflix's best shows will get a proper sendoff.

The show won its second Emmy last weekend for stunt coordination, while Betty Gilpin is among the supporting actress in a comedy nominees for Sunday's Primetime Emmys. Netflix hasn't revealed when you'll get to see the final batch of GLOW episodes. However, judging by previous seasons, you might expect it to make a splash on your TV (or phone or tablet) again next summer.

For me right now, it's highlighting the terrific GLOW,the third season of which arrived Friday, and there are other shows showcased alongside it such as in the Trending Now section. That's vital real estate, as what Netflix promotes there can drive a ton of viewership. It's a bit of a vicious circle, as Netflix is more willing than in the pastto cancel shows that perhaps don't hook enough viewers, yet it decides what to showcase in the so-called recommendation carousel.
