E! Renews The Arrangement for Season Two


E! Entertainment has greenlit a second season of its latest original scripted series The Arrangement, written by Jonathan Abrahams (Mad Men).

The series, from Universal Cable Productions, debuted March 5 and season-to-date is averaging 1.3 million total viewers. Season two will consist of ten hour-long episodes.

The drama stars Josh Henderson (Dallas), Christine Evangelista (The Walking Dead), Lexa Doig (Continuum) and Michael Vartan (Alias).

“As E!’s second successful foray into scripted, we are thrilled to see the show resonate with viewers and gain momentum throughout the season,” said Adam Stotsky, the president of E! Entertainment and Esquire Network. “Continuing to fuel our audience’s passion for pop culture and celebrity, The Arrangement allows us to reveal a darker side of Hollywood that has never been seen before. Alongside our partners at Universal Cable Productions, we’re excited to watch this intriguingly unpredictable story continue to unfold in a second season.”

The Arrangement has won an audience by providing a guilty pleasure with a dash of topicality,” said Jeff Wachtel, the president and chief content officer at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Jonathan, Josh, Christine, Michael, Lexa and the rest of the team have created the perfect cocktail of fairytale love story with a dark twist!”

The Arrangement builds on the success of E!’s first original scripted series, The Royals, which was recently picked up for a fourth season.
