2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards On NBC - ShowIn a world where emoji can inspire a movie, why can't a hashtag inspire a TV series?

Well, the latter is now coming true, thanks to Ryan Seacrest, who's producing a new sitcom for CBS inspired by Taylor Swift's favorite trending topic, #SquadGoals. The series, which is dropping the hashtag and just going by "Squad Goals," is described by Variety as "an ensemble comedy about a group of late 20-something friends who met in college and realize it's time to finally grow up."

The show was scripted by Lindsey Rosin and Aaron Karo, and is "loosely inspired by the writers' own observations," according to the trade. Variety also notes that the series "came to fruition when the pair realized they, among many other young adults, were at a pivotal life moment when their friends were at a crossroads, either balancing marriage and mortgages — or margaritas."

Rosin made waves in Hollywood earlier this year thanks to her "Cruel Intentions" parody musical, which earned the attention and admiration of the film's stars. If she brings the same bite to "Squad Goals," she may win over many more fans soon.

We'll see if CBS picks this one up. #StayTuned.
