UnREALDVR This Thursday, June 23rd, 2016
UnREAL is a deeply cynical, sometimes funny, and very entertaining drama about the making of a show just like The Bachelor. Shiri Appleby plays Rachel Goldberg, a feminist who has found herself producing a paean to misogyny, which contributes to the disappearance of her ethics and a nervous breakdown or two. A brilliant Constance Zimmer is Quinn King, Rachel’s boss, who created the show with her former lover, the despicable Chet Wilton (Craig Bierko). Rachel’s ex Jeremy (Josh Kelly) works on the show and after last season’s events loathes Rachel with extreme passion. This season, the “suiter” is a black man, the first for the show, and in addition to examining the sexual and gender politics of bad TV, UnREAL is going after the worst ways that TV handles racial strife. Oh, my.
