'Selfie': Not just a social-media scourge, but now an ABC pilot too
Sure, you can say it's a bit obnoxious running not one, but two pics of myself on the Feed today. After all, this hallowed space is reserved for famous TV people; not narcissistic critics in blinding orange pullovers. AND YET! My beloved Feed colleague Michelle Stark and I were basically forced to go the #selfie route here in gently mocking celebration of, well, Selfie, a new ABC pilot. The My Fair Lady-meets-Facebook setup seems a bit thin for an ongoing sitcom: A modern marketing and rebranding expert (the great John Cho of Harold & Kumar fame) helps a social-media-obssessed 20-something (Karen Gillan, from Doctor Who and this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy) turn her life around after she becomes a gone-viral laughingstock. Suburgatory creator Emily Kapnek is the brain behind this one. I dunno. I'm not confident. But per usual, I am thankful for the selfie opportunity.
