These Are the Network 10 TV Shows We Could Be Watching In 2020
Network 10's Pilot Week was one of the most exciting TV moments of 2018. The groundbreaking move saw the network hand over control to audiences as eight potential new shows were aired over the course of a week. Based on ratings and viewer reactions, half of the pilots were then green-lit for a full season in 2019- Taboo, Trial by Kyle, Kinne Tonight and Saturday Night Rove.
Given the success of last year, it's no surprise that the network is now gearing up for its second Pilot Week. Pilot Week 2.0, which will commence on Sunday, September 8, will this time feature a smaller number of shows in contention to be commissioned for a full season. Although it was originally intended to feature five shows, the planned Australian version of the the popular reality show Catfish has since been scrapped. Instead, viewers can look forward to weighing in on four new shows.
Without further ado, here are the four Pilot Week shows that we could all potentially be obsessing over come 2020:
- Part Time Private Eyes
The only fictional show in contention this year, Part Time Private Eyes is a comedy set to centre around two primary school mums who decide to start a private investigation business in order to work more flexible hours. Starring two former cast members of iconic Network 10 show Thank God You're Here, Heidi Arena and Nicola Parry, the show will see the two women attempt to undergo detective work strictly within school hours.
- I Am. . . Roxy
Given what a larger than life person Roxy Jacenko is, it's surprising it's taken this long for a reality show that centres around Australia's queen of PR to go to air. The business woman, publicist, talent manager, author and former Celebrity Apprentice contestant will offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse at her everyday life, which promises to be nothing short of lavishly ludicrous.
- My 80 Year Old Flatmate
This heartwarming reality series is set to focus on elderly Australians who offer cheap rent to millennial housemates in exchange for company and help with housework. The show is expected to explore generational gaps and and unexpected friendships in what will no doubt lead to some eye-opening discoveries.
- Sydney's Crazy Rich Asians
Inspired by the book 'Crazy Rich Asians' and last year's hugely popular film of the same name, the reality series is set to follow the glamorous and decidedly extra lives of six local characters. The slice-of-life show will offer a peek at what it is like to live with more money than you even have time to spend.
