E! is looking to build its drama content after ordering a new drama pilot.
The Arrangement, written by Jonathan Abrahams, is described as a Cinderella story for modern times. It follows Megan Morrison, a beautiful young actress who auditions for the female lead in a summer blockbuster playing opposite Kyle West, the hottest actor of the moment.
After an amazing audition segues into a dream-like first date, Megan’s Cinderella story takes a turn to the bizarre when she is presented with a contract that details an entire relationship with Kyle. Megan must weigh her options and the benefits and consequences to her career and her life overall… and decide whether or not she will accept ‘the arrangement’.
Abrahams executive produces with Jimmy Fox, Stephen Lambert, and Eli Holzman.
It is produced by Universal Cable Productions, and Objective Productions USA.
The Arrangement comes on the heels of E!’s first scripted series, The Royals, which has been ordered for a second season.
