UN-Real Earns A Full Season Order

Lifetime has picked up UN-Real for a 10 episode season 1 order. UN-Real is said to be a dark comedy, inspired by Sarah Gertrude Shapiro’s award-winning independent short Sequin Raze, which gives a behind-the-scenes look at the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program. “Un-Real is unlike anything that exists on television today,” Lifetime GM Rob Sharenow said. “It’s premium and original on every level, and we’re thrilled that Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro’s unique series will be Lifetime’s first program produced by A+E Studios.”

Un-Real revolves around Rachel (Appleby), a young staffer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with and among the contestants to get the vital dramatic and outrageous footage the program’s dispassionate executive producer (Megyn Price) demands. What ensues is a humorous, vexing, look at what happens in the world of unscripted television, where being a contestant can be vicious and producing it is a whole other reality. Freddie Stroma and Josh Kelly (oltl) co-star in Un-Real.
