Luxe Listings Sydney: Power agents launch Season 2 of Australian Amazon Original series

Gavin, D’Leanne, Simon and Monika celebrate with Kyle Sandilands, Amazon Prime, Eureka Productions and Kentel

Prime Video has premiered the first episode of the second season of Luxe Listings Sydney. A crowded Museum of Contemporary Art rooftop signalled the return of in-person premieres in Sydney.

“Amazon Prime Video certainly knows how to throw a party,” said Kyle and Jackie O newsreader Brooklyn Ross this morning on their KIIS 106.5 Sydney breakfast show.

Ross attended the party along with Kyle Sandilands and other KIIS FM colleagues. Sandilands helped get the Luxe Listings format off the ground, pitching it to Prime Video and bringing together production partners Kentel and Eureka.

Luxe Listings Sydney’s elite agents Gavin Rubinstein, D’Leanne Lewis, Simon Cohen and newcomer Monika Tu walked the red carpet at the Australian premiere of season 2 of the Amazon Original series which premieres exclusively on Prime Video from Friday April 1.

The importance to Amazon Prime Video of the expanding Luxe Listings franchise was evident by the presence of Amazon’s international head of content James Farrell, head of Australia, NZ and Canada content Tyler Bern, head of Prime Video Australia Hushidar Kharas and CJ Yu, head of unscripted development, global formats at Amazon Studios. Also attending the season launch was Eureka Productions’ chief content officer Rikkie Proost.

Joining the cast of the show on the red carpet, was Kyle Sandilands with fiancé Tegan Kynaston, King Kyle managing director Bruno Bouchet, and Peter Deppeler and Mayo from The Kyle and Jackie O Show. Other guests included Seven’s departing-soon-for-LA Michael Pell who might shortly be more likely to be spotted with the cast of Selling Sunset. Or maybe Luxe Listings Malibu?

Producer, comedian and podcaster Dan Ilich was also an interested onlooker. Look out for his A Rational Fear live event at the Melbourne Comedy Festival this month.

The event was also a magnet for a who’s who of Eastern Suburbs real estate, most of them dressed up for the occasion. “They look like they are all ready to attend the Oscars,” said Kyle Sandilands casting an eye over the crowd.

Sandilands told Mediaweek last night how invested he was in making sure the show continued to be a big success and if he could help by hosting a launch event then so be it.

“Bruno and I have a few other ideas too,” he said. “We have had meetings with all the networks, telling them about a few formats and they also shared what sort of programs they were after.” Sandilands said some of the programmers are keen to get him back on air, something he’s not that interested in. “I would do Australian Idol again though if someone asked,” he grinned.

Amazon Prime’s Tyler Bern and CJ Yu talked to Mediaweek about the importance of authenticity in the new season of Luxe Listings Sydney and how the company was excited by the expansion of the franchise internationally. A third season of the format for Sydney was commissioned just this week.
