Comedian and actor Alphonso McAuley (Walk of Shame, The Middle) has been cast as a series regular opposite Britt Robertson in Girlboss, Netflix’s 13-episode comedy series inspired by Sophia Amoruso’s popular autobiography.
Written/executive produced by Pitch Perfect scribe Kay Cannon and to be directed by Christian Ditter, Girlboss hails from Charlize Theron’s Denver & Delilah production company. It centers on Sophia (Robertson), a rebellious, broke anarchist who refuses to grow up. She stumbles upon her passion of selling vintage clothes online and becomes an unlikely businesswoman. As she builds her retail fashion empire, she realizes the value and the difficulty of being the boss of her own life.
