Star Trek into DarknessJohn Cho has signed for Selfie, a new comedy pilot.

Selfie is a “modern take on My Fair Lady.”

In Selfie, Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan), a “self-obsessed twenty-something…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.”

Cho will play the “self-assured, successful marketing expert Henry, who is a different breed from today’s social media-addicted society.” Henry decides to “re-market co-worker Eliza” as a challenge.

The pilot will be written by Emily Kapnek, who will also executive produce the Warner Bros. Television project. Selfie will be directed by Julia Anne Robinson.

  1. What’s that horrific sound? It must be Audrey Hepburn, Rex Harrison, Alan Lerner, Fred Lowe, and George Bernard Shaw all rising from their graves.
