14 May 2014
ABC recently announced the new series and programs added to its 2014-15 primetime schedule. Here is a first look at trailers for Alan Menken and Glenn Slater's "Galavant," "How to Get Away With Murder" (starring Viola Davis) and more.
"Selfie" "'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."
"Selfie" stars Karen Gillan as Eliza, John Cho as Henry, Tim Peper as Ethan, Da'Vine Joy Randolph as Charmonique, Allyn Rachel as Bryn and David Harewood as Sam.
"Selfie" was written by Emily Kapnek and directed by Julie Anne Robinson, who also serve as executive producers. "Selfie" is produced by Piece of Pie Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
