“The Rich Kids of Instagram” are getting a show on E! documenting their champagne and caviar-filled lives as the network looks to move on from the Kardashians — and it will star Magic Johnson’s flamboyant son E.J. Johnson.

E! in January will debut “#Rich Kids of Beverly Hills,” which will follow five filthy rich Los Angeles 20-somethings featured on the popular Tumblr feed #richkidsofinstagram — a collection of Instagram photos featuring the young 1 percenters posing with their expensive cars, boats, clothes, food and drink.

TV insiders are already suggesting “Rich Kids” is being lined up as a successor to E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” franchise. A source said, “The Kardashians are expensive to produce and their audience appeal is waning. ‘Rich Kids’ are a sexier bunch.”

But a rep for E insisted: “ ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ continues to be destination television for E! viewers and will return in its ninth season this January,” adding, “ It remains E!’s most- watched series.”

Stay Tuned.
