From “Suburgatory’s” Emily Kapnek, the new comedy also stars “Harold and Kumar’s” John Cho
ABC has released the pilot for new comedy, “Selfie,” online ahead of its fall television premiere in September.
In a nod to George Bernard Shaw’s play, Gillan plays social media superstar Eliza Dooley. When a workplace mishap goes viral, she realizes it’s time to find real friends. She enlists co-worker and marketing guru, Henry (John Cho), to “rebrand” her self-obsessed reputation and teach her how to connect with people in the real world. As Eliza goes through her transformation, the people around her learn that they could learn a few lessons about connecting to other people as well.
In addition to Gillan and Cho, “Selfie” stars Da’Vine Joy Randolph and David Harewood.
Watch the episode now via Hulu above.
“Selfie” is set to premiere on ABC on Tuesday, Sept. 30 at 8/7c.
