The 13-part series is ‘inspired’ by the Sophia Amoruso’s best-selling book #GirlBoss.
Amoruso’s built her multi-million dollar fashion brand Nasty Gal after initially selling vintage clothes on eBay. Nasty Gal filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November 2016, just as Amoroso was in Australia as part of a Business Chicks speaking tour.
The Amoruso like character is played by Britt Robertson, and Charlize Theron serves as one of the executive producers.
So what exactly is a #GirlBoss? Here’s how Amoruso explained the term to us last year:
“A Girlboss is someone who is in charge of her own life. It’s about self-awareness and an insatiable curiosity and drive. It’s a philosophy rather than a literal term; you don’t need to be the managing someone to be a Girlboss–you’re just working every day to be the mistress of your own universe.”
The full series streams globally on April 21.
