Beauty and the Beast is based on the beloved Grimm's fairy tale dating back to the year 451.Fairy tales as a genre were not originally intended for children due to their menacing nature, but for the royal courts as they were intended to teach a lesson of morality.This palace is less Magic Kingdom and more King's Landing, a place where producers use tricks, provocations and copious alcohol to engineer drama and steer aspirants into the requisite roles of "wifey" and "villain." As producer Rachel (Shiri Appleby) describes her job: "I create conditions for the things to happen and then I actually make them happen."Rachel has some big reservations about her job, but she's tied to work by even bigger debts--in part because of a near career-ending meltdown on set--and the fact that she's very, very good at what she does.This season, that means managing 's bachelor, rich British playboy Adam (Freddie Stroma) and goading or gulling the harem into fighting for his attentions.The moral in this story is a wonderful, valuable metaphor - that everything is not always as it seems, and, in fact we shouldn't judge a person based on their exterior. It's a beloved, powerful story suitable for young and old alike.
