Britt Robertson is set for the lead 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.

Cannon, who serves as showrunner, executive produces alongside Theron and Laverne McKinnon of D&D as well as Ditter and Amoruso. Filming starts this month with Netflix producing.

Robertson, who previously toplined the CW series Life Unexpected and The Secret Circle, starred in the features Tomorrowland and The Longest Ride last year. She has three features coming up, STX’s The Space Between Us, Mr. Church and DreamWorks’ A Dog’s Purpose.

Robertson is repped by Innovative Artists.
