E! has ordered a new online sitcom, The Wrap reports. Titled Hashtaggers, the series will follow a “dysfunctional group of celebrity ghost tweeters, and the outrageous repercussions their work has on the entertainment industry.”
The eight-episode web series will be one of E!’s first forays into scripted digital content.
Hashtaggers centers on four characters: bohemian Molly Scharf (Patty Guggenheim), ex-child star Colin Greenberg (Peet Guercio), hipster Kal Johnson (Carl Tart), and type-A leader Nikki Hart (Kimberley Crossman).
Each weekly episode will run 3-5 minutes and be streamed on all of E!’s online platforms.
Hashtaggers will premiere in February 2016.
