Hulu-Runs-ABC-Canceled-Selfie

Hulu has become a digital rescue shelter for an abandoned TV series. The streaming video service will run the six unaired episodes of ABC’s recently-canceled Selfie.

Selfie stars Karen Gillan and John Cho in a modern interpretation of My Fair Lady (based on the classic play Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw). The comedy series was created by writer Emily Kapnek, who’s previously written for shows like Parks & Recreation and Suburgatory. ABC canceled the show when it failed to attract a large audience and respectable ratings.

The first of the remaining Selfie episodes debuted on Hulu and Hulu Plus on Tuesday, November 25. The following five episodes will be released one at a time each week for the next five weeks.

Hulu doesn’t yet plan to renew the series, unlike its competitors Netflix and Yahoo tend to do with the series they save. Netflix revived Fox’s hit comedy Arrested Development for a fourth season, and Yahoo is starting production on the online-only sixth season of Community, snagged from NBC.

If you want to watch the last six episodes of Selfie, sign into your Hulu or Hulu Plus account and stream away.
