Rising star Christine Evangelista (“Chicago Fire”) will assume the lead in E!’s second scripted series as a (hopefully) different type of rising star: one who’s offered a Faustian bargain of being made into an industry puppet in exchange for fame and fortune.
“The Arrangement” finds actress Megan Morrison (Evangelista) clinching a big role in a sure-to-be summer blockbuster opposite the Kyle West (Josh Henderson), the actor of the moment. Megan and Kyle share a fantastic audition that transitions seamlessly into a magical first date, which segues not so effortlessly into the presentation of a contract that outlines her entire relationship with her future co-star. Megan must then decide whether selling out her personal life is worth her ambitions.
