Posted on

Reality television about rich kids’ escapades is an art form, and EJ Johnson (son of NBA legend Magic Johnson) is one of its top artists. So perhaps it’s no surprise that the breakout star from #RichKids of Beverly Hills is getting his own spinoff series on E!. EW can exclusively reveal the show will be titled EJNYC.

Despite its geographically specific name, the six-part show promises to feature EJ, who has lost 180 pounds since undergoing gastric sleeve surgery two years ago, and his #Glamtourage — which includes LL Cool J’s daughter Samaria Smith and Persian real estate development heir Sanaz Panahi — jet-setting from coast to coast.

EJNYC will also involve EJ moving back in with sister Elisa. This causes no shortage of drama. In the exclusive clip below, EJ gets upset with Elisa for dating a guy who once led him on. Shenanigans ensue.

Watch the clip below. EJNYC premieres June 19 at 11 p.m. ET, before moving to Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on June 22.
