UPDATED: We’re not psychic, yesterday’s post about where the actors and actresses of Doctor Who can be found this summer was not created with any particular news in mind. It’s just a glorious coincidence.
But the good news for Karen Gillan fans is that her ABC pilot Selfie has been commissioned for a full series, according to Deadline.
Written by Suburgatory’s Emily Kapnek, Selfie is the story of a social media addict called Eliza Dooley (and as it’s Karen playing the part, we can indeed confirm, with Pygmalion pun-wincing accuracy, that the answer to the question “is Eliza Dooley tall?” is yes) who wants to try and connect with people in a more meaningful way after becoming the subject of a humiliating, and very popular, viral video.
She is aided in her quest by a marketing expert named Henry (played by John Cho), who tries to keep her on the straight and narrow, and give her online image a complete makeover. The show also stars David Harewood (Homeland), Tim Peper (Conviction), Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Ghost the Musical) and Allyn Rachel (Million Dollar Arm).
