The recent Supreme Court decision guaranteeing same-sex couples the right to marry is a sign of a cultural shift in American attitudes toward gays and lesbians. Many point to TV's impact in bringing greater visibility to gays, lesbians, and, increasingly, other minority groups, as a factor in diversity awareness.

Sarah Gertrude Shapiro fled a job on "The Bachelor" to come to Portland, where she quickly found work at Wieden + Kennedy. But then Shapiro got the opportunity to co-create the Lifetime drama, "UnREAL," which takes a dark, clever look at the people who make a dating reality show very much like, well, "The Bachelor."
