CNBC is focusing on real estate as a programming growth area, with three new original series on that theme joining the primetime lineup in May.
Listing Impossible follows superstar real estate agent Aaron Kirman and his team as they work to sell multi-million dollar estates that have languished on the market. Cash Pad (working title) is a home renovation series in which Bachelorette couple-turned-home flippers JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers transform ordinary homes and apartments into lucrative short-term rental properties. Five Day Business Flip (working title) features a husband-and-wife design duo who remodel small businesses by creating additional money-making operations for them and do it all in five days.
“Whether it’s investing or building or selling, real estate remains one of the best and fastest ways to build wealth,” said Jim Ackerman EVP, Primetime Alternative Programming, CNBC. “These new shows and our returning series, The Deed: Chicago, are a perfect fit for our primetime slate.”
In addition, Simonsen Says (working title), featuring one of Douglas Elliman’s top real estate brokers Lisa Simonsen, has been added to the network’s development slate. And The Deed: Chicago, which follows real estate mogul Sean Conlon as he comes to the aid of struggling property investors, also returns for a second season.
