All Rise! Kyle Sandilands Channels Judge Judy In 'Trial By Kyle'
From botched Bangkok boob jobs to pesky paps, this Pilot Week contender is defs one to watch!
King of radio Kyle Sandilands has long reigned supreme with his hit radio show Kyle & Jackie O, and tonight he'll reign over the courtroom in the hilarious Pilot Week contender, Trial By Kyle.
Joined by The Bachelor alum and criminal lawyer Anna Heinrich, who will assist in forensically analysing evidence, the Judge Judy-style premise sees Kyle tasked with sorting out disputes between musos, reality stars and more.
"The thing that’s great about it, apart from me and Anna, is the Australian problems are very different from the American problems,” Sandilands said.
“On Judge Judy they arguing about someone owing someone some money for meth, but ours are real problems... like boobs jobs, paparazzi fights, friends falling out over loan money,” he added.

There’s no shortage of celeb cameos either, with stars such as singer Shannon Noll and Big Brother's Skye Wheatley appearing in the episode.
Honestly, it’s wild and super entertaining, and tbh we couldn’t think of a better fit for the role of king of the courtroom than the straight-shooting shock jock.
Trial By Kyle is one of several pilot episodes to be showcased on TEN’s pilot week, with homegrown talent such as Harley Breen and Rove McManus battling it out in the hopes of nabbing a full season to be aired next year on TEN -- but there’s a twist: the audience will decide what makes the final cut!
“Audience reaction, social media buzz and ratings will help us decide what shows will return to our screens in 2019,” TEN’s chief content officer Beverley McGarvey.
“If they all work really well then that’s what we call a ‘high-class problem’. We have plenty of slots to fill across all of our schedules and all of our platforms."
Trial By Kyle airs Thursday, 23 August 8.30pm on Network Ten and tenplay.
