E! Announces “The Arrangement”

Sometimes the best movies, books and TV shows have just a hint of reality in them. Look at how well it’s worked for the whole Law & Order dynasty of shows.

We just learned that E! has just pick up a new scripted drama with a plot that sounds like it could have been pulled from the tabloid headlines.

So here’s the plot of the new show that I for one can’t wait to watch: “The Arrangement” is a Cinderella story for modern times, with a dramatic and complicated Hollywood twist. The drama 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.”

Now let the guessing games begin as to which famous couple or couples inspired that idea for what sounds to be a delicious drama. We’ve got a few picks, but what are yours?

Of course if you can’t wait until “The Arrangement,” E! would, I’m sure, love you to check out “The Royals,” their first scripted show. How can you go wrong with an over the top dysfunctional royal family drama? Having watched several episodes already, I can attest that it’s just pure naughty fun.
