Reality TV series Made in Chelsea will premiere tonight on Bravo and Spy has learnt the reality network is on the look out for more local content. 

With Real Housewives of Auckland already underway, we're looking ahead to the next possible series and think Made in Remuera has a definite ring to it. 

The original Made in Chelsea chronicles the loves and lives of affluent young people in West London, from Chelsea through to Belgravia, the Kings Road and Knightsbridge. It also follows them as they travel to glamorous locations around the globe.

Now, we present contenders for Made in Remuera, from the eastern slopes through to Ponsonby and Herne Bay.
