Lifetime Picks Up "Bachelor"-Inspired Drama "Un-Real"
As “The Bachelor” has continued to dial up the drama over the years, the reality show has faced claims of being “unrealistic.”
Well, Lifetime is taking that to a new level by ordering a new drama, “Un-Real,” to series, according to Deadline.
The 10-episode drama follows a woman (Shiri Appleby) who works behind-the-scenes on a “Bachelor”-esque dating reality show, 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.”
Based on a short film called “Sequin Raze,” “Un-Real” is expected to bow later this year. Freddie Stroma and Josh Kelly also star.
Lifetime is also reportedly in negotiations to pick up “The Lottery,” a futuristic drama starring Marley Shelton.
While they passed on Alicia Silverstone’s “HR” pilot, the show is now being shopped to other networks.
