Netflix has canceled the freshman comedy series “Girlboss” based on the life of Sophia Amoruso and her novel.
Britt Robertson starred as Amoruso who began selling vintage clothes on eBay and, by the age of 28, had built the multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal. Amoruso shared the news in a series of Instagram stories on Saturday and seems pleased over the news:
“So that Netflix series about my life got canceled. While I’m proud of the work we did, I’m looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out. It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent, but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months.
Yes, I can be difficult. No, I’m not a dick. No, someone named Shane never cheated on me. It will be nice to someday tell the story of what’s happened in the last few years. Ppl read the headline, not the correction, I’ve learned.”
“Pitch Perfect” screenwriter Kay Cannon served as executive producer and showrunner on the series, which launch in April. Charlize Theron also executive produced the show which was roundly slammed by critics.
That isn’t the only cancellation this weekend as ABC has canceled the series “Downward Dog” after a single season. The story follows a struggling millennial, Nan, from the point of view of her lonely and philosophical dog, Martin.
Writer/creator Sam Hodges broke the news on social media and says they’re trying to find a new home for the series.
