Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso has already created an empire and her 2014 book, #GirlBoss, took her brand and reputation to new heights. Now, Netflix is about to catapult her into the stratosphere. According to Variety, the online streaming service is turning Amoruso’s popular autobiography into a comedy series.

Katy Cannon, writer of the Pitch Perfect franchise, will serve as show-runner. She will also executive produce the series, along with Charlize Theron, Beth Kono, Laverne McKinnon and Amoruso, herself.

Inspired by the best-selling #GirlBoss book, the series will follow the 32-year-old’s rags-to-riches story, from selling stolen books on eBay to creating the multi-million dollar brand that is Nasty Gal. We can appreciate a good girl power story, so this series definitely seems like something worth checking out.
