TV producer Rachel Goldberg (Shiri Appleby) reluctantly returns to work on the set of reality dating show Everlasting after being coaxed by her boss Quinn King (Constance Zimmer). Because she left the show after a spectacular mental breakdown during the previous season's finale, Rachel faces hostility from co-workers. Nonetheless, Rachel effectively does her job of creating ratings-boosting drama among the show's cast for Quinn—too effectively as it turns out when tragedy hits the set. Along the way, Rachel gets involved in a love triangle with her ex-boyfriend Jeremy (Josh Kelly) and Everlasting's current suitor Adam (Freddie Stroma). Quinn, on the other hand, carries on an affair with Everlasting's creator Chet (Craig Bierko). The first season of "UnReal" also casts Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman and Aline Elasmar as Everlasting producers Jay and Shia, Johanna Braddy as Anna, Breeda Wool as Faith, Nathalie Kelley as Grace, Ashley Scott as Mary, and Mimi Kuzyk as Dr. Olive Goldberg.
