E! has picked up “Hashtaggers,” one of its first digital scripted series.
The 8-episode comedy, from creators Stun Creative, is described as a hilarious look at a dysfunctional group of celebrity ghost tweeters, and the outrageous repercussions their work has on the entertainment industry.
The four titular “Hashtaggers” are played by: Patty Guggenheim as Molly Scharf, sarcastic and bohemian, Peet Guercio as Colin Greenberg, ex child star turned current adult star, Carl Tart as Kal Johnson, ultra cool hipster with a passion for pop culture and Kimberley Crossman as Nikki Hart, described as an intense natural born leader.
Each episode of the series will run 3-5 minutes and will be released simultaneously across E!’s social and digital platforms.
The series is slated to roll out weekly in February 2016.
