Nobody puts Amazon Prime in the corner.
In the same week that Netflix announced it’s dropping an intimate Shawn Mendes doco and a comedy flick starring Timothee Chalamet, Ariana Grande, J-Law and more, Amazon Prime has shared that it’s adding to its own line-up a new series that sounds very similar to Netflix’s Selling Sunset.
“We are pleased to be announcing the new Sydney real estate docu-reality series to our growing and successful Amazon Australian Originals line up,” said Erika North, Amazon Studios Head of Originals.
“We are looking forward to continuing our work with talented Australian producers to showcase the beautiful backdrop Sydney provides and give customers a glimpse into the world-class real estate market in this iconic city.”
The show will follow elite property agents Gavin Rubinstein, D’Leanne Lewis and Simon Cohen as they sell and help buy some of the most luxe homes in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.
Rubinstein’s got his own firm within the Ray White Group (The Rubinstein Group) and, according to News Corp, “quotes LeBron James and has his sunnies custom-made in Los Angeles”. Love.
Meanwhile, Lewis is the current principal at Laing+Simmons Double Bay and Cohen is the co-founder of Australia’s largest buyers’ agent firm, Cohen Handler, which he set up in 2009 and now has offices in Sydney, Brissy and Melbs.
The series will be produced by Eureka Productions, the same team behind Farmer Wants A Wife, The Real Dirty Dancing and The Amazing Race Australia.
Eureka’s co-chief exec Chris Culvenor said in a statement: “Sydney’s real estate market is unlike any other in the world, it’s a brilliant mix of big personalities, spectacular properties and high-stakes deals.”
“Sydney’s real estate sales continue to grow each year and at the heart of these multimillion-dollar deals is the outstanding local real estate agents. Amazon Prime Video is uniquely placed to share stories with audiences in more than 200 countries and territories, showcasing one of the world’s most stunning cities to a global audience, through the lens of our real estate dynamos.”
And yep, we're sold.
