The name and premiere date of Australia’s own docu-reality real estate series that’s been likened to the wildly popular Selling Sunset have been revealed at a Sydney event.
At its Prime Video Presents Australia 2021 Showcase, Amazon Prime has now revealed the name of the new program to be Luxe Listings Sydney, with a global premiere to take place on 9 July 2021.
All three stars of the new show appeared on stage at the Sydney event in front of guests to tease the program’s July release date.
Luxe Listings Sydney will offer Amazon Prime Video viewers from more than 240 countries and territories an intimate look into the buying and selling of Sydney’s high-end, luxury real estate.
It was previously touted that the series would “transport viewers into the fast-paced world of buying and selling high-end luxury real estate”.
As previously noted, the new series is being produced by Eureka Productions, with Chris Culvenor, Paul Franklin, Rikkie Proost and John Karabelas as executive producers. The series has been developed by Kentel with co-production by executive producers Benjamin Scott and James Kennedy.
The new details surrounding the release of Luxe Listings Sydney at the Sydney showcase came alongside the news that Amazon Prime Video would be accelerating its investment in Australian productions, with the greenlighting of a number of new “local originals”.
“We know that viewers in Australia want to see new, fresh, unique and authentic stories that they can connect with, and we’re committed to producing diverse Australian programming for Prime members globally,” said Tyler Bern, the head of content at Prime Video Australia.
He added that “Australians are incredible storytellers”.
“We are delighted to be working with some of the best filmmakers, writers, directors, producers and actors in the world,” Mr Bern said.
Amazon Studios’ head of originals, Asia-Pacific, Erika North, added that the group is “incredibly focused on investing in and developing the world’s best talent to deliver the highest-quality content for our Prime Video customers”.
“We believe that putting the spotlight on the very best stories from Australian creators will not only excite our Australian viewers, but also our Prime members around the world,” she said.
