Revisiting Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, Creator of Lifetime’s 'UnREAL'

Hosted by

We’re revisiting a conversation with writer, producer and ardent feminist Sarah Gertrude Shapiro. When she was starting out working in television, she found herself almost conscripted to work as a producer on The Bachelor. Problematic as the show is to her ideals, she does understand the appeal. Shapiro tells us how she mined her ambivalence about that experience to create the Lifetime series, UnREAL, a dramedy set behind the scenes of a reality show. Plus, an all new Hollywood news banter.
