Set against the backdrop of a fictitious hit dating competition show Everlasting, UnREAL is led by flawed heroine Rachel Goldberg (Shiri Appleby, Girls), 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, House of Cards), 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 producing it is a whole other reality. Freddie Stroma (Pitch Perfect) stars as the dating show’s handsome and intelligent suitor, Adam Cromwell.
This episodic screening will be followed by an extended 30 minute Q&A with creators and talent.
