News reports at Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter about a new show for Lifetime called UnReal look interesting. Here are some of the many things about the project that may make it worth watching.
- The show is developed by Marti Noxon, who has written some of the best TV you’ve ever seen including episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Point Pleasant, Brothers and Sisters, Glee, Private Practice, Gray’s Anatomy and more.
- It’s a behind the scenes look at a reality dating show and the manipulation and drama involving in making so-called reality television.
- The star will be Shiri Appleby from Girls, Chicago Fire, Life Unexpected, Roswell and many other shows.
Wouldn’t it be nice if revealing the truth behind “reality” TV would speed up its demise?
