Hadjii (ABJ ’98) gets attention from the makeup and wardrobe departments on the set of “Somebodies,” a new sitcom filmed entirely in Athens and premiering on the BET network this fall. Based on Hadjii’s film of the same name that screened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2006, the show is BET’s first scripted series. In addition to writing and directing, Hadjii plays the central role of Scottie, an undergraduate at a large university trying to figure out his place in the world. "Somebodies" premieres Tuesday, Sept. 9, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) on BET.
