THE FORBIDDEN HOLLYWOOD KNOWN ONLY TO THE RICH AND FAMOUS IS EXPOSED WHEN “SECRET SOCIETIES OF HOLLYWOOD” RETURNS TO E!
Four All-New Specials Begin This Month: Look Inside What Fuels The Glitz And Glamour Of the Hollywood Machine When “Secret Societies of Hollywood: Deals & Dealers” Premieres Thursday, April 17 at 8PM ET/PT on E!
Los Angeles, April 1, 2014 — What the average movie, TV and music fan doesn’t know about the real Hollywood is a fascinating, and often shocking, portrait of the Entertainment Capital of the World in all of its harsh reality. To the rest of the world, it seems that their favorite celebrities live the ultimate lifestyle, with everything at their fingertips and hoards of people lining up to work with them and for them. What outsiders don’t see would make anyone think twice about stepping into the shoes of an A-list superstar. In four, all-new specials, E!’s hit show, “Secret Societies of Hollywood” returns and goes behind-the-scenes of the Hollywood that the world only thinks it knows to expose the cults, cabals, underground clubs and to reveal the unvarnished truth about Hollywood royalty. The first all-new episode, “Secret Societies of Hollywood: Deals and Dealers” premieres Thursday, April 17 at 8PM ET/PT only on E!
In “Secret Societies: Deals and Dealers,” a panel of industry insiders give first-hand accounts on what has long been considered an integral component of Hollywood’s dark side – the behind-the-scenes wheeling and dealing. Behind every celebrity is an entourage consisting of agents, managers and assistants, with each looking to make a profit off the success of their client. In addition to money, many are hoping to gain connections and to strengthen their own access to Hollywood’s elite – without facing the same public scrutiny as their famous clients. Riding the wave of an A-lister’s success also means always keeping their client satisfied, which in some cases require a laundry list of questionable activities, such as providing a constant supply of illegal drugs and finding a doctor with less-than-ethical practices. From the personal assistants who can expose — or create — a scandal in the blink of an eye, to the agents who will sign their client’s name to just about anything in order to cut a bigger paycheck, even Hollywood’s hottest stars aren’t immune as a target for scams and temptation.
Even more Hollywood secrets will be revealed in “Secret Societies of Hollywood: Lies & Scandals” premiering Thursday, May 15 at 8pm ET/PT. And later this year look for “Secret Societies of Hollywood: Facts and Fetishes” and “Secret Societies of Hollywood: Pursuit of Perfection,” only on E!
“Secret Societies of Hollywood” is produced by Prometheus Entertainment. Kevin Burns is the executive producer.
