Return of 10’s Pilot Week attracts major production companies

• New series pitched by from CJZ, Screentime, Matchbox and Eureka

Back for its second year, 10’s Pilot Week 2019 is promising fresh, funny and thought-provoking home grown content that’s set to get viewers talking.

From the larger than life reality of Sydney’s Crazy Rich Asians and I Am…Roxy!, to the heart-warming My 80 Year Old Flatmate, hilarious Part Time Privates and controversial Catfish Australia, Pilot Week 2019 could offer something for almost everyone.

Network 10 chief content officer Beverley McGarvey said: “We were so thrilled with the quality and creativity we achieved with our partners in the production community for Pilot Week last year. We can’t wait to see how this year’s projects deliver.

“It is clear that more domestic content is what our audiences really crave, and we are working hard to ensure we can provide an innovative and diverse slate of local shows.”

Pilot Week 2019 will include

Part Time Privates

Two mothers at a local primary school decide to start a home-based private investigation business so they can enjoy flexible working hours.

Starring Heidi Arena and Nicola Parry.

Sydney’s Crazy Rich Asians

Produced by Screentime, a Banijay Group company. Screentime executive producer Johnny Lowry. Network 10 executive producer Paul Leadon.

I Am…Roxy!

No publicity is bad publicity. Delve head first into the daily madness of PR guru, publicist, talent manager, reality star, author and mum-of-two, Roxy Jacenko.

My 80 Year Old Flatmate
