Actor John Cho has done quite a lot in his career, including playing Harold in the HAROLD AND KUMAR movies, taking on the mantle of Mr. Sulu for the STAR TREK reboot films and being a regular in four previous television series. However, ABC’s half-hour SELFIE, Tuesdays at 8 PM, is Cho’s first lead in a romantic comedy.

In Fox’s SLEEPY HOLLOW, now in its second season Mondays at 9 PM, all of the characters have problems.

The premise of ABC’s new half-hour comedy SELFIE, premiering Tuesday September 30 at 8 PM, may sound a little familiar to anyone familiar with the musical MY FAIR LADY and/or its play progenitor PYGMALION, though there’s a contemporary twist. Eliza (Karen Gillan, previously of DOCTOR WHO) still has Henry (John Cho) helping her remake her image. However, rather than a Cockney flower seller, this Eliza is addicted to social media, so much so that she lacks skills to interact with actual human beings. Henry tries to help Eliza become someone who can make real friends, and Eliza tries to help […]Read On »
