In February 2016, The Hollywood Reporter published the article "Netflix Orders Comedy Based on Sophia Amoruso Best-Seller '#Girlboss' to Series." THR describes the show as follows:
Inspired by Amoruso's book, the series centers on Sophia's rise from dumpster-diving and selling vintage clothes on eBay to building a fashion empire and becoming a multimillionaire all by the age of 27. It's an authentic, funny, vulnerable story of horrible mistakes combined with incredible twists all from the POV of business's unlikeliest fashion mogul.
One of the Girlboss writers, Jake Fogelnest, has just announced the following on his Twitter:
"I bought one of those cooling gel memory foam pillows today, but the mainstream media is too cowardly to report on it. Good pillow, btw."
Jake Fogelnest is writing for the upcoming series based on Sophia Amoruso, Founder & Former CEO, Nasty Gal. Originally aired on September 29, 2015, Nasty Gal's founder and former CEO Sophia Amoruso sat down with Zerlina at HuffPostLive to discuss her book, "#GIRLBOSS," in which she details her online retail company's rise from a one-woman vintage venture to a $100 million global brand.
Jake Fogelnest is writing for the Netflix series, GirlBoss, based on the rise of the 'Nasty Gal' empire. His other credits include Julie Klausner's Difficult People, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp and Billy On The Street.
