Soon, you'll be able to bingewatch #Girlboss. Netflix is turning Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso's bestselling memoir/career advice book into a comedy series, according to Variety.
The #Girlboss Netflix series is from Charlize Theron's production company Denver & Delilah. The show will bring to life Amoruso's tale of dumpster-diving and eBaying her way to a fashion empire, and 30 Rock writer Kay Cannon's going to write the #Girlboss pilot. Theron, Cannon, Amoruso, and Laverne McKinnon will executive produce the series.
Nasty Gal isn't the only LA fashion brand to get its own scripted series. Juicy Couture's origin story will be the subject of new hour-long show on Freeform, formerly ABC Family.
Theron and Amoruso seem to be tight: Theron was on the very first episode of Amoruso's podcast, and the movie star also made an appearance at the opening party for the first brick and mortar Nasty Gal store.
Nasty Gal made headlines yesterday after the brand announced layoffs of 19 employees, which represents 10% of staff.
