SECRET LIVES OF THE SUPER RICH goes inside the mansions and behind the gates of compounds inhabited by the wealthiest people on the planet. Reported by CNBC's Robert Frank and featuring NYC broker Dolly Lenz and the owner, designer, or builder, each 30-minute episode explores two or three homes, toys, or events, including: the largest home in America; a $150 million mega-mansion; a luxury bunker made by converting a missile silo into an underground home; the richest town in America, with tours of the least and most expensive homes; a mega-wedding; a top-secret celebration with an upside-down birch forest; a NYC apartment covered wall-to-wall in dead animals; a gulf stream jet that gets a multi-million dollar makeover; the owner of the only Lamborghini dealer in the country; an unusual NYC mega-mansion; and much more.
