The new E! drama The Arrangement will debut on March 5 at 10 PM.

Show Synopsis: The 10-part drama shows what happens when actress Megan Morrison (Christine Evangelista from Chicago Fire and The Walking Dead) auditions for the role of a lifetime, she also lands a Cinderella-esque date with A-list movie star Kyle West (Josh Henderson from Dallas). But things get complicated when Megan is offered a 10 million dollar marriage contract and is introduced to Kyle’s secretive self-help organization, The Institute of the Higher Mind.

While Megan has a mysterious past she is trying to keep hidden, Kyle has secrets of his own. Terence (Michael Vartan from Alias) runs The Institute of the Higher Mind, a burgeoning self-help organization with a retreat-like campus in Malibu. Kyle credits both Terence and The Institute for his success. In addition to being Kyle’s best friend and closest confidante, Terence also helps manage his career, as his wife, DeAnn (Lexa Doig from Arrow and Continuum), is Kyle’s producing partner. Terence, whose motives are often unclear, created this contract to “protect” Kyle.

The show will also feature Autumn Reeser (The O.C.) and Katharine Isabelle (Being Human and Hannibal).

Here is a trailer for The Arrangement:


On March 5, the two-hour debut of the new series Time After Time will air on ABC at 9 PM.

The series chronicles the adventures of a young H.G. Wells (Freddie Stroma from UnReal) as he travels through centuries, decades and days in the time machine he created. While in the pursuit of the charismatic (yet secretly psychopathic) Dr. John Stevenson (Josh Bowman from Revenge), better known as “Jack the Ripper,” Wells travels to modern day New York City in search of Stevenson following the doctor’s brazen escape from authorities in Wells’ London home. But instead of the Utopia he imagined, Wells finds a world more aligned with Stevenson’s temperament that leads him on a daring adventure full of mystery, romance and intrigue.

The cast includes Genesis Rodriguez (Big Hero 6), Nicole Ari Parker (Rosewood), Jennifer Ferrin (Hell On Wheels) and Will Chase (Nashville).

The Good Place ended earlier this season with a jaw-dropping finale that both resets the show and keeps it exactly the same.

With that idea in mind, and referencing just a bit of Supernatural and Groundhog’s Day, here’s what I’d love to see in Season Two of The Good Place:

1. Something like what happened in Supernatural’s “Mystery Spot”, where there are just enough changes to the second season from the first season for fans to notice, but still feel like a slightly different season;

2. More of Eleanor’s new soulmate. Man looked good;

3. Janet helping Eleanor figure out how to find Chidi, Jianyu and Tahani; and,

4. More characters that aren’t all connected to working with Michael and his grand design.
