‘UnReal’ Adds New Exec Producer to Season 2; Marti Noxon to Remain Showrunner

Lifetime’s “UnReal” has added Carol Barbee as an exec producer to its sophomore season, Variety has learned.

The “Touch” and “Hawaii Five-0” alum joins co-creator Marti Noxon who will continue to serve as exec producer and showrunner for season two.

Co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro has been elevated to exec producer, alongside former co-exec producer Stacy Rukeyser who was also upped to EP for the second season, which returns in 2016 with 10 new episodes. Robert M. Sertner and Sally DeSipio will return, as well, continuing on as exec producers.

The addition of Barbee and the elevated exec producing team will without a doubt help support Noxon’s work on the critically-acclaimed hit show, as she’s one the most in-demand showrunners, as of late.

Noxon will continue as showrunner on Season 2 of Bravo’s “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” which she created, and will exec produce CBS’ upcoming medical drama “Code Black.” She also just sold a script to Fox for a dramedy titled “Hungry” about the cutthroat restaurant biz in NYC.

Barbee’s other TV credits include “Dig,” “Swingtown,” “Jericho” and “Judging Amy.”
