Preview New ABC Comedy Selfie Pilot with Twitter; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of August 25, 2014)

Selfie

Let me take a selfie! ABC and Twitter are offering users an exclusive first look at a full-length first episode of ABC's new fall comedy, Selfie, that launched on Twitter on Wednesday (August 20). This unique experience will give users a first look at the highly anticipated comedy leading up to the series premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 30 at 8:00pm ET on the ABC Television Network. In addition to being able to watch the full first episode of Selfie within a Tweet from the official Selfie Twitter handle, @SelfieABC, Twitter users, on their iOS devices, can compose their own original Tweet and use the hashtag, #SelfieABC, to render a video of the full first episode that can instantly be tweeted and shared virally from the social media platform. The pilot is also available right now on Hulu. In the series, "Instafamous" Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) has 263,000 followers who hang on to her every post, tweet and selfie. But one lonely day, she has a revelation: being friended is not the same as having actual friends. She asks marketing guru Henry (John Cho) to 'rebrand' her self-obsessed reputation and teach her how to connect with people in the real world. Loosely based on My Fair Lady, Selfie explores the modern struggles of Eliza and Henry, as he tries to teach her how to live life offline - whether she 'likes' it or not.
