Lifetime Orders Un-Real Satire of Dating Shows From Buffy Producer Marti Noxon

Lifetime Orders Un-RealLifetime is pulling back the curtain on dating shows.

The network has given a 10-episode pick-up to Un-Real, a dark comedy starring Shiri Appleby (Girls, Chicago Fire) and written/produced by Marti Noxon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Mad Men).

The hour-long scripted series will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program.

Appleby plays a young staffer whose job is to manipulate her relationships with and among the contestants to get the footage demanded by the program’s dispassionate executive producer (played by Rules of Engagement‘s Megyn Price).

The cast also includes Freddie Stroma (Pitch Perfect), Josh Kelly (One Life to Live), Nathalie Kelley (The Fast and the Furious), Johanna Braddy (Shameless), Breeda Wool (Betas) and Ashley Scott (Jericho). Arielle Kebbel (The Vampire Diaries) guest stars as Courtney, a contestant who has no filter.
