E!'S SCRIPTED SERIES "THE ARRANGEMENT" BEGINS PRODUCTION IN VANCOUVER

Josh Henderson (Kyle West), Christine Evangelista (Megan Morrison), Lexa Doig (Deann Anderson) and Michael Vartan (Terence Anderson) Bring to Life This Complicated Hollywood Love Story That Reveals The Darker Side of Fame

"The Arrangement" Is From Emmy Award-Winning Jonathan Abrahams ("Murder in the First," "Mad Men") And Produced By Universal Cable Productions

LOS ANGELES, CA - July 25, 2016 - E! and Universal Cable Productions will commence principal photography today on the network's second scripted series "The Arrangement," a multi-layered, Hollywood love story about the darker side of celebrity where nobody is what they seem. The 10 episode one-hour series from Emmy Award-Winning writer/EP Jonathan Abrahams and Universal Cable Productions stars Josh Henderson ("Dallas"), Christine Evangelista ("Chicago Fire"), Lexa Doig ("Continuum") and Michael Vartan ("Alias").

"The Arrangement" is a mysterious and complicated Hollywood love story that goes beyond the glamour and lights of the red carpet for a look at the cost of stardom. The show follows Megan Morrison (Evangelista), a beautiful young actress who auditions for the female lead in a summer blockbuster playing opposite Kyle West (Henderson), one of the world's top movie stars. After Megan's amazing audition leads to an incredible first date (and more) with Kyle, her Cinderella story takes an unexpected turn when she is presented with a contract that would change her life forever and secure her fame. However, it raises the question: is their relationship about love or about the contract? And while Megan has a mysterious past she is trying to keep hidden, Kyle seems to be hiding his own big secret as well.

Kyle's mentor Terence Anderson (Vartan), who runs a self-help organization called the Institute of The Higher Mind and is married to Kyle's producing partner Deann (Doig), is the creator of this contract that is designed to "protect" Kyle. But are his own motives much more sinister? In a town where fame means everything, Megan must decide how far she's willing to go to launch her career and whether or not she will accept "The Arrangement."

"The Arrangement" is the second scripted project from E!, following the highly-successful first two seasons of "The Royals," which is currently in production on season three in London. "The Royals" has contributed to E!'s ongoing growth and success, which includes a year on year primetime increase of +10% among A18-49 in first quarter 2016.

"The Arrangement" pilot was written by Jonathan Abrahams ("Mad Men"), who will serve as executive producer on the series. Jimmy Fox of Objective Media Group America (an All3Media company), along with Layla Smith and Gregory Lipstone of All3Media America, and director Jonas Pate will also serve as executive producers.
