Karen Gillan to star in American sitcom "Selfie"

The Radio Times doesn't even have a trailer yet, but they do have the news. Apparently ABC has authorised a series of "Selfie", a take on "My Fair Lady", with Gillan playing lead. The RT describes it thusly. "Co-starring John Cho (Star Trek) and Homeland's David Harewood, the pilot sees Eliza "suffering a very public and humiliating breakup" before becoming the subject of a viral video that lands her more social media followers than she could ever have imagined, albeit for all the wrong reasons. With the aid of arrogant marketing expert Henry (Cho), Eliza decides to overhaul her tarnished image - and if My Fair Lady is anything to go by, the upcoming series will no doubt see the pair fall head over heels for one another."

So, fun, if you like that sort of thing.

But is it going to be as funny as the last time a DW companion pastiched George Bernard Shaw?
