For reality-TV fans – Bachelor fans, especially – Lifetime’s upcoming drama UnREAL will feel more than a little familiar.

PEOPLE has an exclusive sneak-peek clip of the series, starring Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at a fictitious reality romance show in which a group of women vie for the heart of one suitor (see where we’re going with this?).

“It’s totally realistic,” former Bachelor and Bachelorette star DeAnna Stagliano (née Pappas) tells PEOPLE of the clip.

“It reminded me of the show in the way the carriage rolled up and the woman got out playing the violin,” she continues. “It’s totally something a contestant would do to get someone’s attention!”

“I love the power and humor with the producers,” adds Stagliano. “It’s over-the-top!”
