Season 1

UnREAL is an American dark comedy-drama television series created by Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro and inspired by Shapiro's short film Sequin Raze, about a young reality television producer pushed by her unscrupulous boss to swallow her integrity and do anything it takes to drum up salacious show content.

The series gives a fictitious behind-the-scenes glimpse into the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program.

Set against the backdrop of the hit dating competition show Everlasting, UnREAL is led by flawed heroine Rachel Goldberg (Shiri Appleby), a young producer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with, and among, the contestants to get the vital dramatic and outrageous footage that the program's dispassionate executive producer, Quinn King (Constance Zimmer), demands.

What ensues is an eye-opening look at what happens in the outrageous world of unscripted television, where being a contestant can be vicious and being a producer a whole other reality.

UnREAL also stars Craig Bierko (Damages) as Everlasting's eccentric creator, Chet; and Freddie Stroma (Pitch Perfect) as the dating show's handsome and intelligent suitor, Adam Cromwell.

Josh Kelly (One Life to Live) plays Jeremy, a cameraman who is Rachel's ex-boyfriend, while Siobhan Williams (Black Box) is Lizzie, Jeremy's current fiancée and on-set makeup artist.

Everlasting's contestants include Grace, portrayed by Nathalie Kelley (The Fast and the Furious), who immediately wins Adam's heart; Anna, played by Johanna Braddy (Shameless), who is classy and shrewd, with her eye on the prize; Faith, a sensitive and vulnerable tomboy from the South portrayed by Breeda Wool (Betas); and Mary, played by Ashley Scott (Jericho), a gorgeous single mom who has been unlucky in love.

Arielle Kebbel (The Vampire Diaries) guest stars as Britney, a contestant who has no filter and isn't on Everlasting to make any friends.

UnREAL is produced by A+E Studios. Noxon executive produces while Shapiro serves as supervising producer. Sally DeSipio (Do Over) and Robert M. Sertner (Revenge) executive produce and Stacy Rukeyser (Twisted) co-executive produces.

UnREAL is the first scripted series fully produced and distributed by A+E Studios.
