The project, written by Paul William Davies, is set in the Southern District of New York Federal Court, aka “The Mother Court,” and follows brand-new lawyers working for both the defense and the prosecution as they handle the most high-profile and high-stakes cases in the country – all as their personal lives intersect.
Robertson will play Sandra, a sensible, fiercely intelligent and independent new public defender who was driven to the law because of an injustice perpetrated on her family when she was a child. She replaces Britne Oldford, who played the role in the pilot.
Netflix has opted not to renew freshman comedy series Girlboss for a second season. The show, inspired by Sophia Amoruso’s popular autobiography, starred Britt Robertson and Ellie Reed. Its 13-episode first season debuted on April 21.
Written/executive produced by Pitch Perfect scribe Kay Cannon and directed by Christian Ditter, Girlboss hailed from Charlize Theron’s Denver & Delilah production company. It centered on Sophia (Robertson), a rebellious, broke anarchist who refuses to grow up. She stumbles upon her passion of selling vintage clothes online and becomes an unlikely businesswoman.
The short run of Girlboss follows the recent high-profile cancellations of big-budget Netflix drama series The Get Down after one season and Sense8 after two seasons.
