UnREAL: what REALLY happens behind the scenes of a reality show?!
It's set behind the scenes of a fictional US reality show where the fabulous Shiri Appleby plays a young TV producer torn between integrity and drumming up the kind of explosive reality show headlines that attract major coverage.
The fictional show in question is a dating programme called Everlasting and Rachel's job is to ensure contestants behave in the most extreme ways. Basically anything to get the ratings... as we saw on last week's episode when producers were offered a cash bonus to make one of the contestants into a villain!
Complicating things is the fact Rachel's back on the show after suffering a mega meltdown the previous series. That also means facing her ex-boyfriend, a cameraman who is now engaged to someone else.
To get you in the mood, we have two clips from tonight's episode, which airs 10pm on Lifetime!
1. Rachel meets with her psychiatrist mother
2. Rachel faces ex-boyfriend Jeremy
UnREAL is on Lifetime, Tuesday at 10pm
