'Million Dollar Listing: UAE' to start shooting this year and will partner with Aldar and Innovate Living to showcase luxury properties across the UAE.
Josh Altman, star of Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles, spoke at Aldar Experts, a training academy in Abu Dhabi designed to engage and upskill real estate brokers.
During his visit, Altman talked about the upcoming UAE version of the series, Million Dollar Listing, which will air in 2023.
Million Dollar Listing is a reality television format that follows realtors and the high-end properties they are selling.
Josh Altman, who shot to fame as the lead broker on Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles in 2011, spoke about his role in the series and encouraged local brokers to take part.
Speaking at the Aldar Experts event, Josh said: “There is no better place I can imagine for the first international Million Dollar Listing franchise to take place than the UAE. Between the incredible properties and glamorous lifestyle, I think you will be giving us some major competition back in LA.
“Million Dollar Listing was a life-changing opportunity for me and helped to skyrocket my career as a broker and motivational speaker. It’s an incredible platform to showcase not only the incredible developments in the UAE, but also the culture and lives of those who live here. Hopefully, I can extend my reality career internationally and get a cameo on Million Dollar Listing UAE – stay tuned!”
Image Nation Abu Dhabi secured the rights to NBCUniversal Formats’ reality television format earlier this year and has begun pre-production on the first international version of the franchise. Leading UAE property developer Aldar is partnering with the show, which will feature some of the developer’s luxury properties across Abu Dhabi’s most desirable locations. Luxury developer Innovate Living is also on board as a partner to showcase properties across Dubai.
The Million Dollar Listing format started in the US in 2006 and over 13 seasons has proven a popular format, winning two Emmy Awards.
The show will be available for subscribers to watch across the UAE exclusively on StarzPlay.
