"UnREAL" (TV show) is a drama series on Lifetime that stars Shiri Appleby ("Girls") and Constance Zimmer ("House of Cards," "Entourage").

This provocative drama 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 (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 (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.

The cast also includes 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") will guest star as Britney, a contestant who has no filter and isn't on "Everlasting" to make any friends.

"UnREAL" is produced by A+E Studios and was created by Marti Noxon ("Girlfriends Guide to Divorce," "Mad Men," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro. It was inspired by Shapiro's 2013 SXSW award-winning independent short film "Sequin Raze." 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.
