Million Dollar Listing New York premieres March 7 on Bravo at 10:00 and if The New York Times is right, it promises to be pretty juicy. “There is something emotionally charged about the buying and selling of real estate — especially in the stratospherically priced Manhattan market — that goes far beyond simple video tours of palatial homes,” says Times writer Alexei Barrionuevo, “The heat of the deal can bring out the worst in people. And compared with a lot of the reality shows that feel less than real, the sight of people digging in their heels on deals can often make for don’t-touch-that-remote television.” Added to the inherent drama of rich people acting like maniacs, are the three high-end brokers whose lives are fully on display. “Bravo’s production team searched high and low and found three agents who are young, single and all seemingly on the rise (certainly they will be after their star turns). Mr. Eklund is a 34-year-old Swede who starred as Tag Eriksson in gay adult films back home before becoming an agent. He has a friendly rivalry with Mr. Serhant, a former hand model and short-lived soap star whose character on As the World Turns was a biochemist gone bad. They are tall, perfectly groomed and dressed in pricey tailored suits, and there are plenty of shirtless scenes where Mr. Eklund and Mr. Serhant show off their lean bodies.” CAN’T WAIT!
