Created and developed by Ronde Media (Outback Ringer, Big Miracles, and the upcoming Desert King), Billion Dollar Playground takes viewers into the world of people who pay a premium for high-end holiday homes, as will as the staff servicing their round-the-clock demands.
The original 8 x 1 hour unscripted format is a peak into the multi-million dollar holiday homes, personalities, and adventures of the super-rich, seen through the eyes of a concierge team that makes their clients’ dreams come true.
Announcing the new commission at Mipcom in Cannes, Alison Hurbert-Burns, Executive Director of BINGE and Commissioning & Content for the Foxtel Group said: “We are delighted to be working with Ronde Media to create a new Australian format, bringing together the popularity of workplace reality series, luxe living, and a tantalising slice of Australian life.”
“We are looking for reality formats that are original and transport our audiences into realms that are fascinating and immersively entertaining. Billion Dollar Playground has that in diamond-encrusted spades.”
Ronde founder, Ben Davies said: “The fascination with rich people and how they spend their money is endless, which is why we’re taking audiences inside some of the most luxurious properties on earth to witness the upstairs-downstairs dynamic between uber-wealthy jet-setters and the staff who service their every need. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have the Foxtel Group commissioning this incredible new series, which is poised to be the next new global-franchise in the luxe TV space”.
Billion Dollar Playground will commence production in Sydney this summer for broadcast in 2024.
