UnReal Spinoff

TVLine Items: UnREAL Gets Spinoff, Legends Adds Time Master and More

It seems the producers of UnREAL just gotta have Faith.

The Lifetime series is currently producing a spinoff about Breeda Wool‘s Season 1 character, according to co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro.

“Faith is a character we all fell in love with. She was a closeted Christian lesbian from Mississippi, who’s someone I’m very passionate about,” Shapiro told USA Today. “We pick up with her, and she has a Wrangler-type denim endorsement deal. She and her longtime love, Amy, move to L.A., which is very accepting of their lifestyle.”

The spinoff will take the form of 10 webisodes, slated to debut later this year.
