NBC describes The Arrangement as “a multi-layered Hollywood love story about the darker side of being a celebrity where no one is what they seem.” Many believe that the series is supposed to based on Tom Cruise’s life and a behind-the-scenes look at Scientology, but cast members have said on morning shows over the past couple weeks that this is not the case. Executive Producer Jonathan Abrahams tells The Observer:
This is not a show about faith. That’s not [an] underlying theme of do you believe or do you not believe? For me, it was really about [how] Hollywood is such an aspirational town and these self‑help organizations are about aspiring to a higher way of living; having more success in your profession and more success in relationships and having a more fulfilling life. And there’s a real promise to it, that ‘Come join our thing and do our program and spend X amount of dollars and you can change your life.’
