Welcome to the world of bad people making good TV.

The first black Bachelor? It’s about to happen — but not on real-life ABC series The Bachelor. Former pro quarterback Darius Hill (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s B. J. Britt) will be the first black Bachelor on the fictional dating show Everlasting within Lifetime’s UnReal — filming its second season this Spring in Vancouver. Why a black Bachelor on the show-within-a-show? To help Everlasting producers Quinn King (Constance Zimmer) and Rachel Goldberg (Shiri Appleby) get out of the PR debacle that was their last season.

 “Maybe I’m just sick of being a manipulative bitch.” — Rachel Goldberg.

UnReal producers Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro (who worked for several seasons on The Bachelor) called it a no-brainer to cast a black bachelor on fictional Everlasting.

Critical acclaim:

Sarah Gertrude Shaprio and stars Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer were invited to the Banff World Media Festival last June to talk about the show.

The American Film Institute named UnReal one of the Top 10 Television Programs of 2015.

FX chief Jon Landgraf  — who famously said there is “Too Much TV” —  gave a shoutout to two breakout shows in 2015: USA Network’s Mr. Robot and Lifetime’s UnReal.

At the Critics’ Choice Awards in January: UnReal won for Most Exciting New Series and Constance Zimmer for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. UnReal was nominated for Best Drama Series  as well but lost to Mr. Robot and Shiri Appleby was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series.

UnReal’s second season of ten episodes is expected to film from March 7th to June 16th (dates subject to change) in metro Vancouver, according to the DGC-BC production list.
