Social media is everything. Eliza, played by Karen Gillan on the new show Selfie, has 263,000 followers. She’s instafamous. But then something really embarrassing happens and she becomes insta-shamed. And since she is a social media junkie, she seems to need “likes” to validate her own self worth. She needs to rebrand – and her highly successful marketing co-worker Henry, played by John Cho, feels some pity and takes her on as a special project.
Fusion sat down with John Cho and Karen Gillan to learn more about social media. Selfie premieres Tuesday at 8PM on ABC. ABC and Fusion share the parent company, Disney.
