A trailer has been released for the new Netflix series Girlboss, based on #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso. Indiewire reported that it is "not clear how much the series will follow Amoruso's entrepreneurial trajectory, but there's plenty to mine from her experiences." Britt Robertson (Casual, Under the Dome) stars as Sophia; the cast also includes Ellie Reed (2 Broke Girls), Alphonso McAuley (The Middle), Johnny Simmons (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) and Dean Norris.
Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect) is creator, executive producer and showrunner on Girlboss. Executive producers include Amoruso, Charlize Theron, Laverne McKinnon and Beth Kono of Denver & Delilah, and Christian Ditter.
Wrenn Schmidt (Outcast) will play the female lead opposite Peter Sarsgaard, Jeff Daniels and Tahar Rahim in Hulu's straight-to-series drama The Looming Tower, based on Lawrence Wright's Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Deadline reported that "the series hails from Oscar-nominated Dan Futterman (Foxcatcher), Oscar- and Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney (Going Clear) and Legendary Television. Also cast in the project is Ella Rae Peck (Gossip Girl)."
