Default Karen Gillan Stars in ABC's 'Selfie'

Series Order

Quote:
Selfie, from Suburgatory boss Kapnek, is described as a modern take on My Fair Lady. Inspired by the musical and tells the story of a self-obsessed 20-something woman (Karen Gillan) who is more concerned with "likes" than being liked. After suffering a public and humiliating breakup, she becomes the subject of a viral video and suddenly has more social media "followers" than she ever imagined -- but for all the wrong reasons. She then enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image. John Cho co-stars in the single-camera comedy from Warner Bros. Television and Piece of Pie Productions.
I love her so much, if this isn't successful, I will SET MYSELF ON FIRE!!!!

But in all seriousness, the idea of a single camera comedy starring Gillan and John Cho just pleases me.

I am all in on this. Karen Gillian back on my television, plus John Cho in a modern day take on My Fair Lady? God Yes.

Karen's accent alone is going to make this work.

Given how self-involved the character is supposed to be, it fits.

The Alicia Keys type of fire? Or like actual physical hurtful fire?

Two up and coming actors I'd like to see more of... in the same show. Double win.

Only if John Cho wears his broken neck/double chin prosthetic from Sleepy Hollow

Is Karen suppose to be "american" in this? Because just from the little clip that we saw where she barely spoke....her accent was slipping through.

Eh. Her accent was far from the worst fake American I've ever heard. It'll improve with practice, I'm sure.

If fairness, though... that really shouldn't be a person's actual name.

Trailer:
VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

Gives me Don't Trust a B in Apartment 23 vibes. Which inevitably means that I'll love it and ABC will rip it out of my hands within a few seasons time.

Probably could've used a more timely song than Bad Romance, though.

This looks terrible. Most of the new shows on ABC look pretty bad. The only one I'm kind of interested in is Galavant.

I will at least give this a shot. Because Karen Gillan gives me a sonic screwdriver.

I'll admit, I didn't care for the first half of the trailer (or at least her character in the first half), but I don't think this looks awful by any stretch.

Karen is certainly selling the hell out of it, so for that I'll certainly give it a look-see.

But isn't that the entire point? She is suppose to be unlikeable.
