Monica Barbaro (Hawaii Five-O), Denée Benton, Michael Rady (Jane The Virgin) and Gentry White (Turn: Washington’s Spies) have joined the second season cast of Lifetime’s hit UnReal as series regulars.
Created by Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, UnReal gives a fictitious behind-the-scenes glimpse into the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program, Everlasting.
Barbaro, repped by Main Title Entertainment, will play Everlasting contestant Yael, who will drive Rachel (Shiri Appleby) insane because she’s the hotter, less damaged, not crazy, version of her. Benton, repped by Gersh and Perennial Entertainment, is Everlasting contestant Ruby, who’s very smart and is not at all interested in doing what the producers of Everlasting want her to do. Rady, repped by Gersh and Authentic Talent & Literary Management, is Coleman, an East Coast kid who went to NYU film school and is now a documentary filmmaker, and White, repped by Gersh, Luber Roklin and Jackoway Tyerman, is Romeo, Darius Hill’s (B.J. Britt) cousin.
Starring Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer as producers Rachel Goldberg and Quinn King, UnReal made the AFI’s list of the 10 best shows of 2015, and Zimmer snared a best supporting actress Critics’ Choice Award earlier this month for her role. Production on Season 2 is set to begin in March for a summer premiere.
