The Rich Are Different
Sign of the Times
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.
Randi Zuckerberg isn’t the only enterprising producer trying to bring Startupland to the small screen. Over the weekend, Deadline Hollywood reported that Kevin Spacey will be executive producing a new drama on E! Entertainment Television called “Upstarts” about “Silicon Valley’s digital gold rush.” Michael De Luca, the Oscar-nominated executive producer behind The Social Network will also be executive producing the show. Considering that film was Patient Zero for startup fever, we expect a similar outbreak from the TV version.
