“I’m going to pop up in the third season of Girls, I’ll be doing some more episodes of Chicago Fire this year, and I’m just looking for the next great thing!” Shiri Appleby told Parade Magazine in August.
Now, she has found her next great project.
The actress is set as the lead in Lifetime’s drama pilot “UnReal”, Deadline reports exclusively. Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro wrote the pilot about a behind the scenes look at a dating show. Shiri is set to play a young staffer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with (and among) the contestants to get the vital dramatic and outrageous footage the program’s producers demand.
The show is inspired by Sarah Gertrude Shapiro’s award-winning independent short “Sequin Raze”.
