There is no Next Episode of Rich Kids of Instagram planned.
The first episode features Emir, Iman, Christopher and school chums Adil and Jack, and their world of mind boggling privilege and limitless cash. Emir thinks he is Turkey's closest thing to royalty. Heir to a multi-million-dollar property empire, he lives in New York, runs his own real estate business, and parties with Manhattan's elite. In Dubai, glamorous Spanish fashion designer Iman celebrates her birthday on a yacht with a £100,000 party. Iman also has an important catwalk show coming up. In Miami, Christopher is heir to a multi-million-dollar publishing fortune, with a lingerie model girlfriend and hopes of launching a luxury brand via Instagram.
Jet-setter Timothy is from a long-established, super-wealthy American family. To stave off the boredom of never having to work, he visits Berlin for a birthday party with a collection of super-rich kids he's only ever met on Instagram. Latin American student Bryan loves fashion and furs, and flies best friend Bunny into Frankfurt for an alcohol-fuelled weekend of partying. In Dubai, fashion designer Iman is busy cuddling up with exotic animals, and indulging herself at a luxury spa. Ukrainian Julia has a broken heart. She jets off on a £10,000 weekend to Istanbul to get over it and books in to see a cosmetic surgeon. Back in London, she prepares for a glamorous party.
Ryan, aka Slim Stunta, is a one-man wannabe hip hop brand from Atlanta, USA, with a plan for superstardom. Abdullah, from Saudi Arabia, travels the world treated to a luxury lifestyle by sponsors desperate to attract the attention of his many wealthy followers on social media: a private jet from Geneva for a stopover at The Shard's most exclusive suite is all in a day's work. In Dubai, Iman falls seriously ill. American heir Timothy touches down in London and tries the Tube - 'rubbing asses with the masses'. And Ukrainian Julia plans a party in her own honour to make herself instafamous.
American heiress Taylor is a jet-set rich kid who prefers to live on room service when possible. She wants to rebrand on Instagram but a photo shoot in a bath of red wine doesn't go so well. Moldovan Daria cruises around London in her bling Mercedes, customised with ú35,000 of Swarovski crystals. Could this be the start of Daria's new career? Trust fund heir Timothy is hanging with Israeli Insta-buddy Dor in London. And property mogul Emir returns home to Istanbul, only for his trousers to go missing.
In New York, heiress Lana and sister Stephanie have a meeting lined up with TV execs about their own reality show. But time-keeping is not Lana's strong suit. In Orange County, rich kid Bryan's wardrobe is worth half a million dollars. Bryan and best friend Steven get a series of botox, lip fillers and spray tans. American heir Timothy comes to Paris hoping Fashion Week will inspire him. Julia's Instagram lifestyle has been picked up by a beauty salon that wants her to represent their brand: is Julia about to hit the big time?
Texan teen Maya shows us round her luxury house. She hit the headlines when, for her 15th birthday party, her dad paid for 150 party planners, a purpose-built venue, and a guest list of 600. It cost him six million dollars, and his daughter became an overnight hit. Publishing heir Christopher from Miami estimates he's spent $250,000 creating his brand. He'll do anything for the right image, even if it means ditching his girlfriend. This time he's in Las Vegas, pursuing his latest love interest with a helicopter trip along the strip. It's finally time for fashion diva Iman's launch of her new collection. But on the day of the catwalk show, Iman turns into a fearsome super boss, as she deals with one disaster after another. The models are nowhere to be seen, one of the dresses is torn and, more worryingly, the audience's seats are half empty.
