|Executive-produced by Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney (Ocean's 11, Ocean's 12), Unscripted is an innovative half-hour comedy series that fuses reality and fiction to chronicle the lives of three struggling young actors as they navigate the rough waters of show business. Starring Krista Allen, Bryan Greenberg and Jennifer Hall, essentially playing themselves, and co-starring screen veteran Frank Langella as Goddard Fulton, a noted actor who leads them in an acting workshop at Los Angeles' fabled Tamarind Theater, Unscripted offers a revealing look at the sometimes raucous, often disillusioning world of the fledgling actor.|
Editor's NoteSteven Soderbergh and George Clooney have enjoyed an illustrious partnership in the world of film. Their production company, "Section Eight Productions," has yielded a number of films, and Sodebergh has directed Clooney in a number of films such as OCEAN'S 11 and SOLARIS. Here, they team up once again, co-producing HBO show UNSCRIPTED, which follows the fictional lives of three actors as they attempt to succeed in the cutthroat film world. Creating a meta-TV world similar to other early 21st century shows such as CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM and FAT ACTRESS, Krista Allen (DAYS OF OUR LIVES), Bryan Greenberg (ONE TREE HILL), and Jennifer Hall (ALL MY CHILDREN) all play themselves in the show, as do most of the supporting cast. A notable exception is actor Frank Langella (LOLITA), who takes a major role as Goddard Fulton, an acting coach who leads the three main characters through some lessons in the art, with decidedly mixed results. A mixture of comedy and drama ensues, with the three aspiring actors learning some bittersweet lessons in life.
