FOX Entertainment Global to Distribute Billion Dollar Playground


FOX Entertainment Global has picked up the international tape and format distribution rights to the upcoming series Billion Dollar Playground.

Produced by Ronde Media and set to premiere in Australia on Foxtel’s BINGE this summer, the series follows the staff of Luxico, Australia’s leading luxury hospitality and concierge provider, as they navigate the highly demanding needs of their wealthy international guests and the relationships they have with each other while living and working together.

Billion Dollar Playground marks FOX Entertainment Global’s first third-party distribution agreement. It will distribute eight one-hour episodes of the program to networks and platforms outside of Australia and will represent the international format rights to the program.

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, executive VP of content sales and partnerships at FOX Entertainment Global. “This is a show that will play well, no matter the territory or platform, and we are excited to add Billion Dollar Playground to FEG’s growing stable of owned and third-party content and sell it to buyers across the globe.”

Ben Davies, founder of Ronde, added, “Audiences will love the upstairs-downstairs world of Billion Dollar Playground—the demanding guests and the strained house-staff. After all, what job could be more difficult than keeping rich people happy?”
