Storyline

Unscripted is the on going tales of three out of work actors navigating the rough terrain of Los Angeles. In a land where the universal word for actors is "No", Unscripted takes a look at these three kind souls just trying to survive. Bryan is the nice guy suffering the indignities of a young actor from backstabbing to humiliation. Krista is a girl trying to break the mold of always being the sexy girl but continually finds herself in print advertisements as the bombshell. Then Jennifer is a young girl virtually antagonized for her looks but maintains a healthy attitude. As these three mutual friends sit in on an acting class, lead by the legendary Goddard Fult, a man of many words which can be occasionally harsh but constructive criticism and genuine passion for the craft show in his teachings.

Good show, done-to-death topic
10 January 2005 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This is an unusual show in that, while it is fictional, the actors are actually playing themselves. Which is a little strange, since occasionally they don't portray themselves in a particularly positive light (one actress, for example, sleeps with her acting teacher).

Nevertheless, the show is very well acted and directed. The style is unmistakably Soderbergh--hand-held camera, sound overlapping silent shots, etc. The show incorporates celebrity cameos in a very real, organic way, rather than being jokey about it. Overall, a compelling watch.

Problem is, the subject matter is so old, that I can't imagine this show remaining fresh for more than a season. You mean, the life of an actor is extremely tough and often degrading? I had no idea! Especially because the show takes place in LA, rather than New York. In NY, actors at least do interesting things while their miserable. LA is all about going on auditions for bit parts on second-rate sitcoms, a life which I find so pointless that I have a hard time relating to people trying to "make it" in Hollywood.

Who am I kidding? Like I won't watch it compulsively ...
