Great Scot! Doctor Who alumna Karen Gillan has landed the lead role in the ABC comedy pilot Selfie, TVLine has learned.
Penned by Suburgatory creator Emily Kapnek, the single-camera project follows Eliza Dooley, a self-obsessed twentysomething who is more concerned with “likes” than being liked. After suffering a very public, very humiliating breakup, she becomes the subject of a viral video and suddenly has more social media “followers” than she ever imagined… but for all the wrong reasons. Eliza then enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.

A: The worst Dr Who companion by far was Lassie. And yes, everyone says that dogs are the best companions but this thing NEVER LISTENED! Rummaged through the bins, left hair in a Dalek plunger. Ate my tiny reading glasses. I forget which episodes Lassie was in. But definitely her.
A: Actually I met up with her the other day. She’s such a character but one of the most genuine people you could ever hope to meet. The level of success will never change her, even if she’s in a huge film like that. She’s a great laugh and she deserves all the success. No matter what the scale is, she will always be Karen. I think we both have that same approach of whatever it is, just deal with it the same.
