It will also have segments such as “The Pop Culture Minute,” featuring YouTube and Vine stars, and “The Untold Moment,” offering exclusive interviews with Hollywood personalities. The series also incorporates iPhone video, GoPro, FlipCam and XD-Cam footage into its storytelling.

The premiere episode will take a look at the selfie epidemic and how it has led an increasing number of adults and teens to seek plastic surgery, the effects of social media on the British royal family and Syfy’s reinvention of the creature feature.

Menounos inked a multi-year deal with E! in May and will also be featured on the roundtable series “Live From E!” and upcoming “E! Specials.”
