We’ve previously reported that the lovely Karen Gillan has signed on to star in the pilot of Selfie for the US television network ABC. The show revolves around Gillan’s character, the self-obsessed Eliza Dooley, who gets the help of a marketing expert after a bad break-up and an embarrassing video of her goes viral.
Now it’s been revealed that David Harewood, who played Joshua Naismith in the Tenth Doctor’s last story The End Of Time, will be joining the cast of the pilot as Dooley’s boss, the president of the company where she works. He’s described as “rich, confident, a bit eccentric and very involved in his employee’s lives”. Harewood has already spent time in the US as a key character in the action thriller series Homeland.
Sounds like an interesting spin on the My Fair Lady story. Hopefully this will turn out well and ABC will order it as a new show for fall or the mid-season. I’d love to see more of Karen Gillan, and for sure more of her on national television!
