An Evening with UnREAL

May 23, 2016

Reality television gets a refreshing poke in the eye on Lifetime’s AFI Award–winning series, UnREAL. This uncompromising and often darkly funny drama takes a behind-the-scenes look into the making of a reality dating show called Everlasting. Executive producer Quinn King’s (Constance Zimmer) caustic, take-no-prisoners approach to getting the best ratings possible encourages her staff to tap into their killer instincts, providing a moral quandary for ace producer Rachel Goldberg (Shiri Appleby), returning to the front lines after an on-set meltdown and conflicted over the ruthless tactics necessary for bringing “entertainment” to the masses. Variety has called the show “a savvy, acerbic look at how the reality-TV sausage gets made, with all its inherent manipulation, and collateral damage be damned.” Cocreator and executive producer Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, Zimmer, Appleby, and fellow cast member B.J. Britt (Darius Hill), who takes on the role as Everlasting’s first African American suitor, and executive producer/showrunner Carol Barbee will be on hand to discuss season two of the series.
