Selfie - Watch First on TVNZ OnDemand
You're in for a tweet, because we're bringing you brand new episodes ofSelfie, first on TVNZ OnDemand.
Tons of online followers but no real-world friends? What's a girl to do?
From Suburgatory'sEmily Kapnek, Selfie is a new comedy series about Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan Doctor Who), a social mediaobsessed narcissist who, after realizing that her life is only filled with shallow relationships, enlists the help of her company's marketing expert, Henry (John Cho Star Trek movies, Harold & Kumar movies), to "rebrand" her.
At first, Henry wants nothing to do with Eliza, who is the epitome of all he deems wrong with the app-addicted world. But soon Henry takes pity on Eliza.
With a few expert tweaks, he can tone down her palette, teach her a few social graces and help break Eliza of her instinct to put Internet connection above personal connection. What Henry doesn't anticipate, however, is how much he'll learn; as a workaholic who rarely makes time for socializing, Henry begins to realize that his little "project" just might have something to teach him.
After all, keeping life at arm's length is great for taking aSelfie, but not so much if you want someone in the picture next to you.
