American reality dating
It stars Shiri Appleby as a young reality television producer pushed by her unscrupulous boss (Constance Zimmer) to swallow her integrity and do anything it takes to drum up salacious show content.
The show was created by Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, and was inspired by Shapiro's award-winning independent short film Sequin Raze.
Producer Rachel Goldberg returns to Everlasting, a popular dating show, after a breakdown.
With a reputation to rebuild and executive producer Quinn King breathing down her neck, Rachel must pull out all the stops in what she does best: manipulating the contestants to create the outrageous drama that viewers expect.
In early-November, Megyn Price, Nathalie Kelley and Johanna Braddy joined the show's cast.
On the contrary, it's a callous game of bullying and illusion whose sole objective is outrageous narratives.That process of seduction is led by executive producer Quinn King ...a single-minded puppetmaster whose chief henchman is Rachel Goldberg ...a young producer whose task is to cajole, badger and play on the weaknesses of the show's participants to get the footage Quinn demands.Moore noted that, despite the contestants' expectations, "the game is fixed and the matchmaking premise is only a pretext ...
[the contestants] are pawns in the Everlasting chess game, with Quinn, in her video-paneled master control, pronouncing which contestant is the designated villainess, which is the hot one, which ones are boring and should be bounced." Un REAL doesn’t exist just to send up reality television, or to pick at its scabs.
