Four years after the demise of Bravo’s NYC Prep, we still haven’t found the perfect replacement show about over-entitled rich kids behaving badly. But wipe those Dom Perignon-tinged tears off your face because E! is developing a show called Rich Kids of Beverley Hills, which sounds similar to the Rich Kids of Instagram Tumblr.

Deadline writes the network has somehow discovered a time slot when Knocked Up isn’t on its millionth replay for a “new unscripted series that revolves around a group of 20-something friends living in a world of extreme wealth who caught notice on Instagram.”

It appears to be loosely based off of the Rich Kids of Instagram Tumblr, which chronicles the trials of wealthy kids struggling to decide which of daddy’s jets they should take or understand why their Tesla isn’t fully charged. Or their long days spent at the soup kitchen.

Since the show is just in development, it might not ever see the light of day. But we’d like to nominate a candidate: Barron Hilton, the little brother of Paris. Watching him watch his sister form sentences would be good television.
