Kyle West is an actor whose name can turn (almost) any film into a box office success. He meets a young wannabe actress, Megan Morrison, not long after he is left at the altar. She finds herself similarly at the end of a relationship.
They hookup rather quickly and before she knows it, he suggests marriage. But the offer comes through agents and appears to be sponsored by West's agent--played by Michael Vartan--who is also guru, puppeteer and fixer to the star. Lurking behind it all is the Institute of the Higher Mind, a cult-like organization with an image to protect.
If much of this sounds patterned after the life of Tom Cruise, it may be.
The show touches on issues like celebrity privacy, how the film industry treats women, and creating your own destiny. A great deal of its appeal depends upon how much the viewer enjoys the main characters and the actors who play them.
Three episodes in, the plot is somewhat predictable. Will it tell a story with emotional depth or will it be a soap opera piece, putting its caricatures through the usual moves?
