IT had to happen some time – Netflix has commissioned a British version of its hit reality show Selling Sunset.

The show will follow a London-based property agency with super-rich clients and will be made by the company behind The Apprentice.

Super Prime London will begin filming next year and is likely to feature a number of eccentric agents, just like its American counterpart, fighting over some of the capital’s most lavish and expensive properties.

Across the pond, Selling Sunset tracks a group of agents as they sell high-end residential properties in Los Angeles, marketed by the Oppenheim Group.

It has made global stars of some of the staff, including Chrishell Stause and Christine Quinn.

A TV source said: “Selling Sunset was the perfect blend of factual TV and reality gold, blending property porn and bonkers Americans with the lives and loves of the super glamorous cast.

“Whether the same can be achieved in London without the balmy temperatures and Hollywood views remains to be seen - but it’ll be great fun watching.

“Either way, estate agents could do with a boost to their image here in the UK.”

It comes after The Sun on Sunday revealed the BBC are also making a show of similar vein called Crazy Rich Agents.

They believe it will be their next big reality hit and filmed over the summer.

It will follow seven property newbies trying to land big bucks by flogging luxury pads for elite agency Nest Seekers International.

A source said: “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.”

Expect to see Scottish castles, second homes in Sandbanks and London mega-mansions.

Since Selling Sunset first premiered on Netflix in 2019 it has been a huge success and fans are eager for the sixth instalment.

They are curious about Christine Quinn's fate at the brokerage as her future on the show has not been officially confirmed.

Boss Jason Oppenheim told US Weekly: "That’s gonna be a wait and see for everyone. I’m gonna let this season speak for itself."

As of May 4, 2022, Christine is not listed on the Agents portion of The O Group's official website.
