A ‘Selfie’ TV Show Is on the Way Because #YOLOSWAG
[ Social Media]

Are you a person who thinks that weekday nights are sorely lacking in bathroom mirror shots? If so, ABC may just have the perfect pilot for you.

The network has ordered a pilot for a new series simply titled “Selfie.” The new comedy comes from writer Emily Kapnek, who is best-known for her work on ABC’s Suburgatory, now in its third season.

Here’s the show’s synopsis, via Entertainment Weekly:

Comedy inspired by My Fair Lady tells the story of a self-obsessed 20-something woman who is more concerned with ‘likes’ than being liked. After suffering a very public and 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. She enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.

Ok, well, “Selfie” is the reigning word of the year – at least according to Oxford. Described as “a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website,” Selfie beat out Twerk, Bitcoin, and Derp to win the title of 2013′s top new word.

It’s hard to judge a new TV show before it even airs, so I won’t. I will say that a quick Twitter or Instagram search for #selfie reveals that, if nothing else, people are still snapping photos of themselves with great fervor.
