How Much Is The Arrangement Following TomKat's Relationship?

The moment E!’s The Arrangement was announced, people couldn’t spit out, “Is this about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes?!” fast enough. Since the drama premiered in February, the questions haven't disappeared. Despite creator Jonathan Abraham's vocal denials about the speculation, Twitter still isn't so convinced.
The series follows a lesser-known actress named Megan (Christine Evangelista), who receives a marriage contract from newly single international movie star Kyle (Josh Henderson). The whirlwind celebrity romance definitely gives off Tom and Katie vibes, although Kyle has yet to jump on any couches. Instead, it's clear the actor is hiding some shady secrets from his would-be legally-mandated bride, who also has some skeletons in her own closet.

Their Celebrity Status

Tom was an international superstar when he began dating Katie, while she was still best known as "that lovable girl from Dawson’s Creek."

On the Arrangement, Kyle is the kind of superstar who can afford $10 million marriage contracts. Megan is simply a “recognizable” up-and-comer.
