'Doctor Who' alum Karen Gillan to star in ABC pilot 'Selfie'
Doctor Who fans, your prayers (to the Time Lord?) have been answered: Karen Gillan could be coming back to TV.
EW has learned that the former Doctor companion has been cast as the lead in the ABC pilot Selfie, from Suburgatory creator Emily Kapnek.
The single-cam comedy, said to be inspired by My Fair Lady, centers on a self-obsessed 20-something woman named Eliza Dooley (Gillan), who is more concerned with “likes” than being liked. In the pilot, a video of her very public and humiliating breakup goes viral and she enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.
The announcement of the casting comes on the heels of the release of the well-received first teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy, in which Gillan appears as blue-skinned alien Nebula.
