Sophia Amoruso is officially #winning.

The founder of e-commerce site Nasty Gal and writer of the millennial working woman’s bible and autobiography #Girlboss is now getting her own show.

Variety reports that Netflix is teaming up with Pitch Perfect writer Kay Cannon and actress Charlize Theron to turn Amoruso’s popular book into a comedy series.

The show will be about Amoruso’s rags-to-riches rise from shoplifter to fashion magnate. The entrepreneur appeared at No. 30 on Fortune‘s list of 40 Under 40 in 2014, in which her story was neatly summarized as follows:

In 2007, Amoruso was working odd jobs at shoe and record stores when she realized she was bad at working for other people. So she set out to chart her own course selling vintage clothing on eBay, earning $70,000 in revenue in her first year. She saved most of it to start her own fashion retail site, Nasty Gal, a fashion website that attracted a cultish following among millennial girls.

Not everything is rose-colored in Amoruso’s world, however. Earlier this week, Nasty Gal announced that it would be laying off 10% of its staff. This comes a year after Amoruso stepped down as CEO, promoting Sheree Waterson to take her place.
