A new Apple TV+ video gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the creation of new perm- and leotard-filled dark comedy Physical. The retro series follows the 1980s transformation of a timid housewife into an aerobics influencer extraordinaire.

The four-and-a-half-minute “making of” video features input from Physical stars Rose Byrne, Rory Scovel, Della Saba and Dierdre Friel, along with series showrunner Annie Weisman. It includes discussions of the show’s themes, including central character Sheila Rubin’s eating disorder.

I’ve not yet had the chance to delve into Physical. From the look of things, it’s reminiscent of Netflix’s GLOW, a show I very much enjoyed. Physical debuted last week on Apple TV+. Subsequent episodes will be released each Friday. You can check out Cult of Mac‘s review of the show here.
