‘It is such a great opportunity to showcase creative projects from our talented production community, and then determine what resonates the most with our audience’ he added. 

Previously, Roxy Jacenko’s reality show I Am Roxy was featured in the 2020 Pilot Week schedule. 

Trial By Kyle, starting shock jock Kyle Sandilands, was picked up for additional episodes after its run in the 2018 Pilot Week.

In 2018, four of eight Pilot Week shows were renewed by the network, including Trial By Kyle, Saturday Night Rove, Taboo and Kinne Tonight.

However, none of those shows are still on the air in 2021. 

Last year, Roxy Jacenko came out swinging against a gossip columnist who claimed that her reality TV show I Am… Roxy! had been scrapped by Channel 10.

The pilot aired in March 2019 during Pilot Week, but the network did not confirm whether it will return for a full season.

The 40-year-old publicist denied the rumours, telling Daily Mail Australia: ‘No decisions have been made yet on Pilot Week 2019.’ 

However, to date, the show has not returned to the air. 

I Am… Roxy! was the highest rating pilot in the history of Channel 10’s Pilot Week, pulling in 530,000 metro viewers.
