The show concentrates our attention on Fredrik Eklund, Ryan Serhant, and Luis D. Ortiz. They deal with real estate affaires. These agents work as the represents of people selling property in five districts of New York.
In spring of 2010, World of Wonder started making the first steps to the creation of the spin-off about real estate agents that they decided to call Million Dollar Listing New York. The official release date was announced at the end of January of 2012. Michael Lorber, Ryan Serhant and Fredrik Eklund were planned to be the main cast for the upcoming project. However, Fredrik Eklund left the team due to his stiff working schedule. Season 1 attracted more than a million viewers.
Then the show was prolonged for one more season that started on the 8th of May, 2013. The producers added a new member to the cast – Luis D. Ortiz. Michael Lorber decided to leave the series cause the show didn’t give him a chance to develop his business. He was the first one to say that the show isn’t practically a reality, because parts of it are scripted and played for the camera to produce more drama.
The third season started on the 2nd of April, 2014. The last episode of the third season attracted about million and a half viewers, which made it the most popular episode in history of the project.
In 2014, the show got an Emmy award. On the 14th of July, 2014, the show was prolonged for season 4. It started on the 15th of April, 2015. Another Emmy reward was received the same year. Season 5 started on the 21st of April, 2016. In the end of it, Ortiz said that he was planning to leave the project.
