The property industry is set to be centre stage on TV soon after it has been leaked that BBC 2 has been making its own ‘observational documentary’ series about selling property in the UK called Crazy Rich Agents.

Looking very similar to the Netflix series Selling Sunset and Channel 4’s recent Mega Mansion Hunters, the show will be based in the UK and feature a group of largely young and inexperienced wannabe estate agents trying to sell upmarket homes and bag a big commission.

Featuring agents taken on by agency NestSeekers International, the series, which is still in production, may not go down well with many agents as the format, like its Channel 4 counterpart Mega Mansion Hunters, is expected to portray the sector as a magnet for unqualified ‘make it till you fake it’ agents.

Being made by independent TV producer Plum Pictures for the BBC, Crazy Rich Agents will involve some of the most expensive homes for sale in the UK and not be restricted to London, as other shows have been.

The production company also makes George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces for Channel 4.

The first four-part series with each episode lasting an hour, with filming having begun last month.

A source told the Sun on Sunday that it would include Scottish castles and Sandbanks mansions, adding that: “This bonkers doc follows the lives of hot, young agents in the UK luxury property market who are cutting their teeth in the trade.

“There is a real vibe of ‘fake it ’til you make it’ and a lot of bravado flying around.”

The series, which is a play on the name of 2018 film ‘crazy rich Asians’, is expected to air early next year.
