Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer are UnREAL

One of the standout shows of 2015 and already confirmed for a second season, the tantalizing drama provides a wildly entertaining look at just how far producers might go to make drama on screen.

Set against the backdrop of a fictional dating show, UnREAL is led by Rachel Goldberg (Shiri Appleby, TV’s Girls), a young staffer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with, and amongst, the show’s contestants to get the vital dramatic and outrageous footage that the program’s deliciously devious executive producer, Quinn King (Constance Zimmer, TV’s House of Cards), demands.

UnREAL also stars Craig Bierko (The Change-Up) as “Everlasting”‘s eccentric creator, Chet; and Freddie Stroma (TV’s Game of Thrones) as the dating show’s handsome and intelligent suitor, Adam Cromwell.

Named one of this year’s Most Exciting New Series for the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, and also been nominated in the Breakthrough Series category at this year’s Gotham Independent Film Awards. UnREAL on DVD includes the following features:

  • Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes:
