Lifetime has ordered “Un-Real” to series, a dark comedy centering on a dating competition reality show.

From Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, “Un-Real” offers a fictional behind-the-scenes look at the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program, where a young staffer’s sole job is to manipulate her relationships with and among the contestants to get vital footage.

Project is inspired by Shapiro’s short “Sequin Raze,” and produced by A+E Studios. “Un-Real” will be A+E Studios first wholly-owned series.

“‘Un-Real’ s unlike anything that exists on television today,” Lifetime’s exec veep Rob Sharenow said.  “It’s premium and original on every level, and we’re thrilled that Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro’s unique series will be Lifetime’s first program produced by A+E Studios.”

Shiri Appleby will topline the comedy. Other cast members include Megyn Price, Freddie Stroma, Josh Kelly and Nathalie Kelley. »
