The Kleiers are expanding their real estate influence to a new drama called “Hot Property,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. ABC Family is currently developing the hour-long “dramedy” based on the book of the same title by Michele Kleier and her daughters, Samantha Kleier Forbes and Sabrina Kleier Morgenstern. The family runs brokerage Kleier Residential and appears regularly on “Selling New York.”

The show will focus on the grueling New York City real estate industry, seen through a character named Elizabeth Chase and her two daughters, Kate and Isabel. Sound familiar?

A scriptwriter and producers are already on board.

In January, Michele told The Real Deal that “Selling New York” was a blessing for her family since it kept her mind off the sudden death of her 25-year-old son in 2009.

“It takes you out of your normal life,” she said of the show. “If you ever need to be taken out of your life, it’s when something like that happens.” [Hollywood Reporter]Zachary Kussin
