Deadline’s The Contenders Emmys Video: ‘You Me Her’ Roars Into TV’s New Sexual Frontier

You Me Her
Audience Network

AT&T’s new Audience Network is trying to make its mark on the Emmy  race this season with a couple of new series including the provocative comedy, You Me Her  which was part of their showcase at Deadline’s first-ever Contenders Emmys all day event at the DGA theatre last month where The Contenders Emmys - 630x423awards hopefuls got to strut their stuff in front of a packed audience of TV Academy and key guild members.  Joining me for a conversation about You Me Her was its creator/writer John Scott Shepherd  and its two female stars  Rachel Blanchard  and Priscilla Faia  who play two thirds of a complicated love triangle that essentially sees a married couple taking on another woman in a relationship that certainly kicks the tires of tradition. Although initially inspired by a Playboy article exploring alternative relationships , this show became its own entity in the hands of Shepherd who said it is taking a progressive idea and setting it essentially on Main Street Portland.   It is a hot button topic at first glance, but he says it evolves into genuine emotion with these three people beginning to fall in love in a very unorthodox way.  Faia , who plays the call girl who gets involved with both sides of this couple  says it is not gratuitous at all and emphasizes that what you see on screen are real, complex people.   To see our conversation just click on the link above.
