The series focuses on a group of Los Angeles' wealthiest Asian and Asian American friends and frenemies as they go all out with fabulous parties, glamour and of course, lots of drama - all the best ingredients for your next reality TV obsession.
Check out the trailer below:
The cast includes Kevin Kreider who was born in Seoul, South Korea and adopted by a white family. He moved from Philadelphia to LA to pursue a career in modelling. Kane Lim is from Singapore and moved to LA to continue his family business investments. He describes himself as a billionaire.
In the show, Cherie Chan is introduced as having previously been on the path to becoming a pop superstar in Japan. Now, she and her partner Jessey Lee are busy raising their son and daughter.
Christine Chiu, who was born in Taiwan but now lives in Bel Air, describes herself as a philanthropist, investor and "couture collector". Kelly Mi Li is an entrepreneur who is dating Andrew Gray, a former red Power Ranger.
One person in particular has captured the attention and imaginations of viewers - Anna Shay. She lives in Beverly Hills and is half Japanese and half Russian. The show describes her as "super, super wealthy".
It looks like Anna may become one of the most talked about reality show stars of the year. One person tweeted a picture of Anna (which is on it's way to becoming a meme) featuring one of her top quotes from the show. The tweet reads: "And just like that: Anna Shay became reality TV gold."
A second viewer shared: "I want Anna Shay as a friend. Her wit and quick answers are awesome."

I hope the bling don't change Kevin. Seems to have a good heart. Obnoxious Kane grew on me by episode 4, what a comedian pic.twitter.com/lzf6EH5AAe

"Okay, I love Anna. She's so humble but fabulous," Wrote another.

One fan might have given Netflix their next big idea, tweeting: "Forget Emily in Paris, I want Anna in Paris." This is a reference to the popular Netflix show and a storyline from the first Bling Empire episode where Anna takes Kelly and Andrew to her favourite restaurant for her birthday... in Paris.
