UnREAL’s Shiri Appleby & Constance Zimmer
The Emmy-nominated scripted hit UnREAL takes a behind-the-scenes look at the production of a fictitious dating competition series. The show, which was created by Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, is produced by A+E Studios and distributed by A+E Networks. It debuted on Lifetime in the U.S. in 2015, with a second season broadcast last year and a third slated to begin airing in early 2018.
UnREAL co-stars Shiri Appleby (Roswell) and Constance Zimmer (Entourage) portray producers Rachel Goldberg and Quinn King, respectively. The pair sat down with TV Drama Weekly’s Anna Carugati to discuss the journey of their complicated characters, who Zimmer describes as being involved in a non-romantic “love affair.” They also talk about the double standard that still exists in today’s society when it comes to how powerful women are viewed as compared to men.
