While Ruby won’t be appearing on Byron Baes, The Sydney Morning Herald reports that fellow influencer Elyse Knowles has been ‘hotly tipped’ for a lead role.

Byron Baes follows the influencers in their daily lives, but does not criticize the influencer culture.

Netflix’s director of content for Australia and New Zealand, Que Minh Luu, said it was a ‘no brainer’ to give the show the green light.

“You have this clique, or live feed as we called it, of Instagrammers, who all live in Byron, and there are a lot of them,” Ms Luu said.

‘I’m not going to convict anyone for having a product to sell. Musicians have music to sell. I have ideas to sell, ”added Ms. Luu.

A press release for the program describes Byron Baes as a ‘docu-soap series’.

“This is our love letter to Byron Bay,” it says.

It’s not just Chris [Hemsworth] and Zac [Efron]’s backyard; It’s the playground of more celebrity-adjacent influencers than you can poke a selfie stick. ‘

There will also be ‘fights, flings and heartbreaks’ on offer.
