Pilot Week 2019 Contenders announced

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

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

But just which shows will find their way to a new home on 10? Well that’s down to you. By tuning in and talking it up, we will gauge which of the Pilots have been the biggest hits with viewers and work to bring a whole series to life.

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 includes:

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.
