girlboss-britt-robertson-netflix-tv-show“Tomorrowland” star Britt Robertson has landed the lead role in Netflix series “Girlboss,” the streaming network announced Tuesday. The 13-episode half-hour comedy will premiere in 2017 and is based on the bestselling book “#Girlboss,” penned by Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso.

Robertson will play 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 a Netflix production, created by and executive produced by Kay Cannon, who also serves as showrunner. Other executive producers include Amoruso, Charlize Theron and Laverne McKinnon of Denver & Delilah, and Christian Ditter, who will also direct the series.

Robertson can next be seen in “The Space Between Us” alongside Asa Butterfield and Gary Oldman, Eddie Murphy’s “Mr. Church,” and the DreamWorks feature “A Dog’s Purpose.” Last year, she also appeared in “The Longest Ride,” and previously starred in CBS’ “Under the Dome” and CW dramas “The Secret Circle” and “Life Unexpected.”
