About UnREAL

Lifetime’s critically-acclaimed series “UnREAL” from A+E Studios makes its highly-anticipated return on Monday, February 26, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT. Caitlin FitzGerald (“Masters of Sex,” “Rectify”) takes the reins as Everlasting’s female “suitress,” Serena. Determined to have her pick of eager male suitors, Serena will face off with Everlasting’s queen bees, producers Rachel Goldberg (Shiri Appleby) and Quinn King (Emmy-nominee Constance Zimmer) who are shaking things up, all for the sake of ratings. The ladies will be tempted more than ever when they’re surrounded by hot new suitors including Bart Edwards (“Peep Show,” “Fantastic Beast”), Alex Hernandez (“Chicago Med”), Adam Demos (“Aboriginal Heart,” “Cooped Up”) and Alex Sparrow (Russia’s “Bachelor” & “Dancing with the Stars”).

In following Lifetime’s Broad Focus initiative, season three of “UnREAL” has an impressive roster of female directors including Appleby and co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro returning and Zimmer making her directorial debut. Hanelle M. Culpepper (“Empire,” “Quantico”) and Sheree Folkson (“Decoy Bride,” “Doctor Who”) also join as directors.

Co-created by Shapiro and Marti Noxon, “UnREAL” gives a fictitious behind-the-scenes glimpse into the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program. Fan favorites Craig Bierko (“Everlasting’s” creator, Chet), Josh Kelly (Jeremy, “Everlasting’s” DP and Rachel’s ex), Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman and Genevieve Buchner (“Everlasting” producers Jay and Madison) are all set to return. Brandon Jay McLaren (“Ransom”) joins the cast as the on-set psychologist, “Dr. Simon;” Kassandra Clementi (“Hatfields and McCoys”) appears as Chet’s new girlfriend, “Crystal;” Chelsea Hobbs (“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce”) is, “Charlie,” a talented new camera assistant; and Jaime Callica (“Wayward Pines”) is “Xavier,” a dancer and “Jay’s” love interest.

“UnREAL” is executive produced by Shapiro and Stacy Rukeyser, who serves as showrunner. Robert M. Sertner, Sally DeSipio, Peter O’Fallon and David Solomon also executive produce, and Noxon serves as consulting producer. “UnREAL” is the first scripted series fully produced and distributed by A+E Studios. A+E Networks also handles global sales for “UnREAL,” which has been sold and airs in more than 100 territories.

#FemaleFilmmakerFriday

Shiri Appleby was among the female Hollywood directors who took to social media on Friday for #FemaleFilmmakerFriday. Started by ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s’ co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna, the hashtag was launched to highlight women and their work behind the camera and to inspire.

Shiri who recently directed the finale of UnREAL’s season four, joined the social movement by sharing three photos from her first directing gig. She wrote:

Everyone has a way into the directing chair and Dating Rules From My Future Self was mine. During the shows first season I worked as a producer, and actress. Experiencing the process as it unfolded led me to asking if I could come onboard as a director during the shows second season. I’m grateful to Les Morgenstein for saying yes and giving me my start.
