It’s time to boss up.
On Monday, Netflix rolled out the official trailer for Girlboss, its 13-episode comedy series based on Sophia Amoruso’s bestseller of the same name. Girlboss takes viewers inside the seams of Amoruso’s start — from selling vintage clothes on eBay to launching her unapologetic e-commerce site, Nasty Gal.
And no, it doesn’t skirt around the struggle.

Britt Robertson fronts the series, which was adapted by Charlize Theron’s Denver & Delilah production company and written by Pitch Perfect’s Kay Cannon.
“When we got the rights, we went to one other place (aside from Netflix),” Theron said during a February panel in New York. “Just to give you an example, we sat in a room, the feedback we got was absolutely shocking — it was mostly men in the room. We walked out with a sense that if we didn’t find the right home for this, it would become something very mediocre.”
Delving into specifics, Cannon explained: “When we did pitch it to the place we shall not name, they said, ‘You can’t call it Girlboss, and you need to make it more for men.’ We were like, ‘That is what the show is,’ it was almost like a joke.”
And now, the joke’s on them.
Girlboss is available for your binging pleasure April 21.
