SELFIE follows Eliza Dooley (Gillan), a self-centered girl in her twenties who goes through "a public and humiliating breakup" and ends up the subject of a viral video, which brings her more visibility than she ever bargained for. To fix her image, she seeks the help of a marketing expert at her company.
Randolph is set to play 'Charmonique', the company's receptionist, with Peper as Eliza's competitive co-worker.
Randolph was nominated for the 2012 Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical for her portrayal of 'Oda Mae Brown' in GHOST THE MUSICAL. She will next be seen on the big screen in The Angriest Man in Brooklyn. Her other TV credits include Brenda Forever and The Good Wife.
Peper's TV credits include appearances on NCIS, Bones, Susanna, The Good Wife, Dirt, Carpoolers, Guiding Light, Law & Order, Conviction and more.
