In June 2022, Netflix confirmed that Mauricio Umansky had landed his own reality TV show.
The outlet described the new series as a “real estate occu soap” and revealed it will be called “Buying Beverly Hills.” The show follows Umansky along with his daughters Farrah Brittany and Alexia Umansky, among several other real estate specialists who work at Umansky’s firm, The Agency.
“I am beyond excited to share that @theagencyre arrives on Netflix this fall in Buying Beverly Hills. I will star alongside my daughters, @farrahbritt and @alexiaumansky, and a talented group of agents from The Agency in Beverly Hills. Following in the footsteps of our agents and clients, the occu soap highlights the high-stakes world of luxury real estate in Los Angeles. Stay tuned for details,” Umansky teased in an Instagram caption on June 23, 2022.
Netflix didn’t reveal when “Buying Beverly Hills” would premiere, but did say it would air in the fall of 2022. Flash forward to September 2022 and the show still doesn’t have a premiere date.
So, is it still happening? And what can fans expect from the show?
Here’s what you need to know:
On Friday, September 9, 2022, Alexia did a Q&A on her Instagram Stories. Someone asked her what fans will see when they watch “Buying Beverly Hills”.
“Oh man,” she replied. “I was very vulnerable, that’s for sure. You may laugh WITH us, you may laugh AT us… You may cry. I know I did,” she revealed.
What makes our show so different is that we have people in the industry at every level (the beginners, the ballers, and the CEO). I want to tell you everything! BUT you’ll see soon enough,” Alexia continued.
Alexia is the second daughter of Kyle Richards and Umansky to join The Agency. According to her biography on the company’s website, she “represents the next generation of real estate professionals and brings a forward-thinking perspective” to the office.
“I grew up watching my father’s work. I saw him show houses, sit at open houses and build relationships with clients. He knows so much about every neighborhood in this city, driving around with him was always a little lesson. Growing up, I used to come to the office to shadow him and always learn something new. Real estate is something I always knew I loved. And I quickly realized that I could devote my life to this industry and be happy,” she says.
Although Umansky has appeared a lot on his wife’s reality show, she will not have a role in his.
In an interview with Goss.ie, Richards revealed that she had too much going on during the filming.
“You know, I’m not right at this point because, you know, I’m obviously shooting the Housewives and I’m filming ‘Halloween’ and I’m also producing an hour-long drama for a new show I’m doing. So my hands are really full,” said Richards.
“We were actually shooting at the same time, so it wasn’t even really an option, but I’m really excited for my husband and my daughters. It’s not something I wanted in my life, but you know what? I think it’s going to be great and they’re going to do well,” she added.
