Last night I attended The Paley Center’s “Evening with UnREAL” event. In attendance was the series Co-Creator and Executive Producer Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, Executive Producer Carol Barbee, and several cast members including Shiri Appleby, Constance Zimmer, and B.J. Britt. In addition to the moderated panel portion of the evening, we were also treated to the first episode of the season two!
It’s been another busy year of watching TV. Some beloved shows bid adieu, some jumped the shark, others enjoyed a creative resurgence, and many new excellent shows were added to my watchlist. To celebrate, here’s my ‘best of’ list for 2015. As always, this list is both subjective and ultimately meaningless. Cheers to the new year!
While channels like AMC and HBO aren’t infallible, they’ve got a decent enough track record to warrant at the very least casual interest in any new series announced. After all, you never know what’ll become the next Breaking Bad or The Wire. But that doesn’t mean you should limit your viewing to networks that can lay claim to having an Emmy award winning series.
