It adds: “With exclusive access to Nest Seekers International, one of the world’s fastest growing elite real estate companies, we follow seven rookie estate agents over the course of the summer as they put everything on the line to sell some of the most impressive and exclusive properties in the UK.

“From rural castles to seaside mansions, penthouse apartments to gated estates, if the agents make the sale they stand to make hundreds of thousands in commission overnight.

“Who will impress the bosses to become the next ‘super star agent’ and who will fall by the wayside?”

Crazy Rich Agents starts on TV on Sunday, 6 August at 9PM on BBC Two.

You’ll be able to stream every episode on BBC iPlayer straight after Episode 1 is broadcast on BBC Two.

In the first episode, with a £3 million Grade 2 listed castle as their stage, 35 rooms, and a wine cellar, the rookie brokers are in for an extraordinary summer challenge.

Their new CEO, Eddie Shapiro, has unveiled a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: the broker who shines the brightest during the summer will earn a coveted spot at the agency’s New York headquarters.

With a former care home behavioural therapist, an international model, a building society worker, a Dubai estate agent and a former music producer, these aspiring brokers hail from various walks of life. Yet, united by a common ambition, they are all determined to carve their path as luxury real estate’s rising stars.

BBC Commissioning Editor, Max Gogarty said: “We are delighted to be working with Plum Pictures on this revealing, entertaining and high stakes series.

“It will offer a unique insight into the booming luxury property market in the UK and show the highs and lows of working in this world for the young agents that are trying to make it.”

Crazy Rich Agents will air on BBC Two and iPlayer.
