UK pubcaster Channel 4 has commissioned an LA spin-off of the docuseries Made in Chelsea for its youth-oriented channel E4.

The 6 x 60-minute series – produced by NBCUniversal International Television Production unit Monkey – is to be filmed around Beverly Hills’ most stylish locations, and will find Chelsea personalities “putting their stamp” on the city.

Channel 4 ordered a New York spin-off for the series last March, and the original series (pictured) – which is currently in season nine – is to celebrate its 100th episode on E4 on June 15.

Made in Chelsea: Beverly Hills is scheduled to air on E4 this summer. The program was commissioned by Channel 4 head of formats Dominic Bird and commissioning editor Simone Haywood, while executive producers for the show include Monkey’s Ros Coward, David Granger and Sarah Dillistone.

“Los Angeles is a playground for the young, rich and the beautiful so it’s going to be really exciting to see the cast embrace everything it has to offer,” said executive producer Ros Coward in a statement. “Whether they are hanging on beaches, shopping in Beverly Hills or partying on Sunset Boulevard, I’ve no doubt we’ll see everything we love about Made in Chelsea but times 100.”
