U.S. cable network E! has slated Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, a series following five wealthy friends, to air in January.

Produced by ITV Studios America in association with Leepson Bounds Entertainment, the 8 x 30-minutes series features a group of friends who have gained attention via their Instagram and Twitter accounts, which document their extravagant lifestyles.

The cast of Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, which includes Dorthy Wang, Morgan Stewart, Brendan Fitzpatrick, Roxy Sowlaty and Jonny Drubel, will open up their lives, friendships and relationships to the cameras.

“These kids are larger-than-life personalities who are charismatic, shockingly wealthy and born into lifestyles that are outrageously spectacular,” said Jeff Olde, exec VP of programming and development at E!

“They live a fantasy life on a scale that you just can’t turn away from and then they document it all via social media. But at the core, I think viewers will be drawn into the fact that they are genuinely good friends who still have to navigate friendships, relationships and life – but they get to do it all in luxury cars, yachts and private jets, which is really fun to watch.”

David Leepson, Gennifer Gardiner and Doron Ofir serve as executive producers.
