Netflix’s slashing of its original content continues with another show biting the dust after just one season.
Girlboss, based on a New York Times best-selling book of the same name, has been axed and joins recently binned action series Sense8, written by the Wachowski sisters, and Baz Luhrman’s hip-hop drama The Get Down.
Sophia Amoruso, who authored the book and whose life was the inspiration for the series, shared the news in a series of Instagram stories on the weekend.
“So that Netflix series about my life got cancelled,” she wrote. “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.”
The show centred on Amoruso (played by Britt Robertson), who began selling vintage clothes on eBay and built up the multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal, by age 28.
Charlize Theron’s Denver & Delilah production company backed the series, together with Laverne McKinnon and showrunner and Pitch Perfect screenwriter Kay Cannon.
