British digital network E4 has commissioned the “factuality” special 24 Billion Pound Party People (pictured) from Seven Network-backed UK indie 7 Wonder.
The hour-long film – which fuses documentary with reality TV storylines – will provide insight into the entrepreneurial pursuits of nightclub owner Joe Fournier and his team as they jet-set across the globe to throw lavish parties for the world’s elite.
Additionally, the series will trail Fournier’s trips across London, Miami, Paris and Mykonos as he sets out to become the world’s top luxury lifestyle brand and mogul through investments in restaurants, magazines and nightclubs, including his flagship nightclub Bonbonniere.
“In an age when too many young people feel locked out of the labor market, here we have a group of inspiring twenty-somethings who can’t think of anything worse than taking a nine to five,” said Lee in a statement. “The inter-personal relationships of the cast are key, yet through watching the show you can’t help but learn from and be inspired by the entrepreneurial energy created by this unique set of individuals.”
