John Cho joins Karen Gillan ABC comedy Selfie

ABC has confirmed the latest addition to the new comedy “Selfie” starring Karen Gillan. John Cho (Star Trek) has been confirmed as a male-lead in the comedy, from “Suburgatory” creator Emily Kapnek.
 
Fans might also remember that Cho was recently on Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow,” he was also a regular on the short-lived NBC comedy “Go On.”
 
The series itself puts a modern spin on the popular musical “My Fair Lady”. A self-centered 20 year-old named Eliza Dooley (Played by Gillan) accidentally publicly humiliates herself with a viral video, causing her to gain the popularity on social-media that she has always craved, but not the way she had hoped.
 
Here is where the story picks up, Dooley hires a social-marketing expert to repair her now tarnished image and sets off to correct her social blunder. This marketing expert will be played by Cho.
 
Cho’s character is a co-worker of Dooley, who takes on the job as a personal challenge. Others cast members include Allyn Rachel, Tim Peper, Da’Vine Joy Randolph and David Harewood.
