Fox Entertainment Global (FEG) has struck its first third-party distribution agreement, acquiring the worldwide tape and format rights to Ronde Media’s upcoming Australian docu-soap Billion Dollar Playground.

The 8 x 60-minute series, which is scheduled to debut in Australia on Foxtel’s streaming platform Binge this summer, is set in the world of opulent homestays through the eyes staff at luxury hospitality and concierge provider Luxico.

The company’s young guns must not only navigate the highly demanding needs of their international guests but also the budding relationships they have with each other as they live, love, work and play together.

The series is executive produced by Ben Davies and David Emery, with Bethan Briegel-Jones serving as co-executive Producer and Anita Brown as post executive producer.

Billion Dollar Playground delivers everything docu-soap fans desire – drama, intrigue, romance and exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the ultra-high-end lifestyle of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world,” said David Smyth, FEG’s EVP of content sales and partnerships.

FEG already distributes third-party movie titles, alongside in-house productions, but Billion Dollar Playground will be the first third-party series in its catalogue, with the company shopping the tape outside Australia, as well as holding international format rights.
