A new four part TV series is to lift the lid on some of the agency activities that go on to market Britain’s most extraordinary homes.
Channel 4 is building on the success of the one-off Britain's Most Expensive Houses show, which reached three million viewers late lat year.
Now a similar four-episode series - made by Belfast-based Waddell Media - will be a fly-on-the-expensive-wall expose of Sotheby’s International Realty’s marketing of properties.
Each hour-long show will follow prospective buyers as they view and purchase high-priced houses across the country, as well as following the work and home lives of Sotheby’s estate agents.
The production company’s managing director, Jannine Waddell, says: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be commissioned to make a series of Britain’s Most Expensive Houses following the huge success of the one-off at Christmas.
“This new series promises to be even better as we will be giving viewers not only a unique view into more fabulous homes owned by some of the most affluent people in the UK, but also an insight into the continued drive by so many wealthy individuals to move from the city to the country as a result of the pandemic.”
And Tim Hancock, Channel 4’s commissioning editor, adds: “After the success of the [one-off] documentary I’m delighted Sotheby’s have allowed us back to take a peek at more of the most extraordinary houses in the UK, and to give us a window into what it means to be extremely wealthy in Britain today.”
