Unscripted is an American comedy-drama series that aired on HBO in early 2005. Its title referred to the fact that the series was largely improvised by its performers. The series was executive produced by Steven Soderbergh, George Clooney, and Grant Heslov.

It follows the misadventures of three struggling actors, who are all in the same acting class in Los Angeles, California, as they make the rounds from auditions to rejection, to personal struggle and to satisfaction. The three main characters all appear as themselves as the show blends fact with fiction as a movie/show within a show. It features many cameo appearances from many stars playing themselves either in projects they're involved in, or involved in a social function such as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Noah Wyle, Hank Azaria, Richard Kind, Meryl Streep, Uma Thurman, Jon Lovitz, Shia LaBeouf, Keanu Reeves, Sam Rockwell, Danny Comden, Bonnie Hunt, George Lopez, Barry Corbin, director Doug Liman and producer Akiva Goldsman.

The series aired between January 9, 2005 to February 27, 2005 on HBO and Angelina's part is a cameo from the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) together with Brad Pitt and the episode was the third one.
