Selfie is an upcoming American situation comedy series starring Karen Gillan and John Cho
Using a premise similar to Pygmalion and My Fair Lady, the series will follow the life of Eliza Dooley (a modern day version of Eliza Doolittle), a woman obsessed with becoming famous through the use of social media platforms (including the use of Instagram and taking selfies), until she realizes that she needs to actually find people that she can be friends with physically instead of “friending” them online.
This prompts Eliza to hire Henry Higenbottam (a modern day version of Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady), a marketing self-image guru who takes on the task of rebranding Eliza’s image in the hope of showing her that there is more to life out there than just playing Candy Crush Saga with an iPhone and connecting with a Facebook page.
The series premieres on 30th September, 2014. A pilot of the same is currently available.
