Review of "Girlboss" 4/16/17 by Suzanne
Airs on Netflix now

This is a fun little series. It's more cute then funny, although some of the dialogue is really smart.  Britt Robertson plays Sophia, a young woman struggling in San Francisco. She's no Marlo Thomas!  Sophia is what they call a "hot mess."  She barely goes to her job, she's mean to people, and she gets mad a lot when things don't go her way. She gets evicted from her apartment and then loses her job, so she has to figure out what she's doing in life.  She does meet a really cute drummer, but along the way, she realizes that she can make money re-selling vintage clothes on ebay.  She has  a talent for recognizing valuable old clothes.

I just watched the first few episodes, but it looks like a pretty entertaining show. I hope you watch it! It also shows many great scenes of San Francisco and plays lots of great music.



13 Half-Hour Episode Comedy will Premiere in 2017

Beverly Hills, Calif., June 7, 2016 — Britt Robertson will star in the Netflix Original Series Girlboss, a 13 episode comedy inspired by the NY Times best-selling book #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, founder of the fashion brand Nasty Gal. The show will premiere in 2017.

In the series, Robertson portrays Sophia, 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.

Girlboss is created by and executive produced by Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect 2, 30 Rock), who also serves as showrunner. Charlize Theron (Monster, Young Adult) and Laverne McKinnon, of Denver & Delilah, Christian Ditter (How to Be Single) and Sophia Amoruso will also serve as executive producers. Ditter will also direct the series, that is a Netflix production.

Robertson stars in the STX Peter Chelsom feature The Space Between Us with Asa Butterfield and Gary Oldman (in theaters August 19. 2016). She also stars in the film Mr. Church opposite Eddie Murphy (in theaters September 9, 2016) and the DreamWorks feature A Dog’s Purpose opposite Dennis Quaid and directed by Lasse Hallstrom (in theaters at the end of the year). Last year Britt had two back to back movies in theaters; first the lead in the Nicholas Sparks adaptation of The Longest Ride for Fox 2000, then the Brad Bird Disney feature film Tomorrowland opposite George Clooney.
