“The Arrangement” star Josh Henderson wants viewers to know that there will be a “normal love story” at the center of the upcoming series about a Hollywood marriage contract.
“This is really about a love story, at the core,” Henderson told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell. “That’s what I think is going to be fun about this. We’re seeing the Hollywood glitz and glam. We’re seeing this life that is pretty much unobtainable to most people. But we’re seeing a very normal love story kind of happen, with this really weird thing — the contract.”
The series follows up-and-coming starlet Megan Morrison (Christine Evangelista), who impresses the world’s biggest movie star Kyle West (Henderson) so much in their audition together that he whisks her off to an amazing first date on his private jet. She’s soon presented with a marriage contract for $10 million.
Henderson’s character is also a member of a mysterious self-help group — a trait that should get viewers comparing him to Hollywood A-lister and prominent Scientologist Tom Cruise — even if the depiction is very loosely based on the real-life star.
With a set up like that, what can fans expect from the first season?
“Fans can expect a lot,” Henderson said. “We’re going to keep them guessing… Everyone has a past. These characters, they all have a pointed past. They all have secrets and these secrets will unfold throughout the season.”
“The Arrangement” premieres on E! this Sunday at 10 p.m./9c.
