ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — January 29, 2019 —CNBC today announced the network’s latest investment in primetime. Beginning in May, a slate of new and returning originals focused on real estate will join the network’s primetime lineup. The network has greenlit three new originals including “Listing Impossible,” which follows superstar real estate agent Aaron Kirman and his team as they work to sell extravagant, multi-million dollar estates that have been languishing on the market; “Cash Pad” (working title), 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; and “Five Day Business Flip” (working title), which features a husband-and-wife design duo who remodel small businesses by creating additional money-making operations for them and do it all in just 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.
