After “Sense8” e “The Get Down”, another original series Netflix still ended up being discontinued in early stage. Now it was the turn of “Girlboss”, a comedy inspired by Sophia Amoruso's autobiography with Britt Robertson actress in the lead role.

According to Engadget, “Orange is the new Black” attracted five times more audience “The Get Down”, and cost far less.
