TV Guide: Network 10’s Pilot Week 2019

• 2019 Pilot Week begins Sunday September 8

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.

How did 10 honour that promise?

10 is delivering larger than life reality of Sydney’s Crazy Rich Asians and I Am…Roxy!, to the heart-warming My 80 Year Old Flatmate and the hilarious Part Time Privates.

2019 Pilot Week begins Sunday September 8, but it will go ahead without Catfish Australia which was cancelled due to a lack of suitable talent.

Featuring Casey Donovan and Patrick Abboud, the local reboot of the American reality show called for people to apply who were in a relationship with someone who they hadn’t met yet, and were beginning to suspect wasn’t real, or people who were currently lying about their identity to someone. Catfish was going to be produced by Eureka Productions.

Network 10 chief content officer Beverley McGarvey said when announcing the 2019 schedule: “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 schedule

Tuesday
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. As their business unexpectedly thrives, they find themselves thrown deep into the world of working ‘undercover’; moving between school pick-ups, dance group and lunch orders, to threesomes, insurance fraud and failed relationships. Starring Heidi Arena and Nicola Parry.

Produced by CJZ. CJZ executive producers Toni Malone and Nick Murray. Network 10 executive producer Paul Leadon.

Sunday
Sydney’s Crazy Rich Asians

Money, shopping, cars, events and glamour. Sydney’s Crazy Rich Asians follows the opulent lives of six very “extra” characters and their local fixer who waits on their every want and need…no matter the cost.

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

Wednesday
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. This entertaining and comedic access-all-areas pilot pries into Roxy’s everyday life behind her world of high glamour and outrageous excess.

Produced by Matchbox Pictures and Two Scoops Media. Matchbox Pictures executive producer Debbie Byrne. Two Scoops Media executive Producer Michael Wipfli. Network 10 executive producer Ciaran Flannery.

Friday
My 80 Year Old Flatmate

It’s reality TV with heart, as older Aussies offer cheap rent to hard-up millennials in exchange for company and help around the house. Creating surprising friendships and mutually-beneficial relationships, it’s a look into what can happen when you take the leap across the generation gap.

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