If you don’t know Pilot season is about to be underway and as a Film/TV lover I am super excited! The Hollywood Reporter recently listed a complete Pilot guide for 2014 and I picked my Five Favorite that I am looking forward to seeing most! The Five I picked below range from comedies to drama on ABC,CBS and FOX networks! The “Selfie” pilot series in particular is astounding because of the Social media craze with taking pictures of themselves = Selfie !
Logline: The modern take on My Fair Lady is inspired by the musical and tells the story of a self-obsessed 20-something woman who is more concerned with “likes” than being liked. After suffering a 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 then enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.
