On the roster this year is Partime Privates, Sydney’s Crazy Rich Asians, I Am… Roxy!, Catfish Australia and My 80 Year Old Flatmate.

Scroll through to see what’s in store for each of the new Pilot Week premieres…

Catfish Australia

Hosted in the US by Nev Schulman and Max Joseph, the wildly popular show about catfishing is coming to Australia.

The new series will be hosted by pop star Casey Donovan and Walkley-nominated documentarian Patrick Abboud.

They’ll come to the aid of every day Aussies who have suspicions about their internet beau, facing off against the real identities behind the online profiles.

As a victim of catfishing, Casey is sure to bring a personal touch to her hosting role.

Catfish Australia is currently casting, and you can apply to be a part of the series here.

Part Time Privates

Two mothers at a local primary school decide to start a private investigation business so they can enjoy flexible working hours. As their business thrives, they find themselves deep in the world of working ‘undercover.’

The series stars Heidi Arena (The Librarians, Little Lunch) and Nicola Parry (Swift and Shift Couriers, The Hollowmen).

Sydney’s Crazy Rich Asians.

Taking inspiration from Kevin Kwan’s novel and the international blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians, this Sydney-based TV show will follow the opulent lives of “six very extra characters” and their local fixer who waits on their every want and need.

I Am…Roxy!

Sweaty Betty PR guru Roxy Jacenko will provide an all-access pilot for her new reality series, which delves into her everyday life behind her world of high glamour and outrageous excess.

My 80 Year Old Flatmate

Sure to be a heartwarmer, this reality TV series follows older Australians who offer cheap rent to millennials in exchange for company and help around the house.

The series will highlight their surprising friendships and look at what can happen when you take the leap across the generation gap.

Pilot Week returns soon to Network 10.
