'Catfish Australia' And More Will Premiere During Pilot Week
This year's Pilot Week has everything from catfishing to 'Crazy Rich Asians'.
Now in its second year, Pilot Week is all about taking a chance on some bold, innovative and exciting ideas and asking Australia which ones should be turned into a full series.
Last year's Pilot Week included the successful 'Kinne Tonight', 'Taboo' and 'Trial By Kyle' and this year's batch is an even wilder mix that includes the world of PR, private investigators and putting up with an intergenerational housemate.
Finally, an Australian version of the show that explores the complexity of online relationships. Former 'Australian Idol' star Casey Donovan, who has publicly spoken about her own catfishing experience, will join documentarian Patrick Abboud to help out everyday Australians who have suspicions about the real identities of their online loves.
I Am... Roxy!
Roxy Jacenko is a woman of many talents, juggling her life as a PR guru, publicist, talent manager, author and mother of two. 'I Am...Roxy!' will let us have an all-access peek into her hectic lifestyle and we can't wait.
Part Time Privates
Although the title of this show sounds a little risqué -- it's actually about two primary school mums who fancy themselves as private investigators. The two amateur sleuths (played by Heidi Arena and Nicola Parry) fit in their investigations between school runs and lunch orders. Their business quickly begins to thrive, throwing them into a world of threesomes, insurance fraud and failed relationships!
Sydney’S Crazy Rich Asians
If you've seen and loved 'Crazy Rich Asians' then get ready for the Aussie version that centres on the opulent lives of six hilarious characters from Sydney who aren't afraid to indulge in money, shopping, cars and GLAMOUR.
My 80-Year-Old Flatmate
We're already crying in anticipation of this heartwarming reality pilot that pairs hard-up millennials in search of cheap rent with elderly folk who need a little company and help around the house. Intergenerational friendships are something we want to see more of on TV in 2019, please!
Pilot Week 2019 is coming soon to 10 and WIN Network.
