Network Ten has provided a first look at its ‘Pilot Week’ programming line-up, which is set to hit screens next Sunday.

Last month, Ten unveiled eight new pilot programs for Australians to watch, with the network using their feedback to help it form its content slate for 2019.

However, the network copped some serious flak from three prominent female industry personalities, as well as a hilarious roasting from comedian Kitty Flanagan, for picking an all-male hosting line-up for its new shows.

You can check out the sneak peek of Ten’s Pilot Week below.

And here’s a briefing on what you can expect:

Skit Happens (premieres Sunday 19 August at 8pm)

Nothing is safe from a Skit Happens parody, when the nations up-and-coming comedians including Jenna Owen, Heath Franklin, Vita Carbone, Stuart Daulman, Janis McGavin, Josh Glanc and Neel Kolhatkar join forces for Ten’s first sketch comedy in 12 years.

Disgrace! (premieres Sunday 19 August at 8:30pm)

The world is full of disgrace and outrage. Shunned politician Sam Dastyari and the team behind Gruen and The Chaser manage the latest outbreak of outrage in a half-hour of opinion, insight and laughs.

Drunk History (premieres Monday 20 August at 9.30pm)

Rhys Darby and Stephen Curry pour themselves a drink in the international hit comedy format that takes Australia’s rich, and often surprising history and re-tells it through the words of our most loved comedians and entertainers. Starring Gyton Grantley, Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald, Anthony “Lehmo” Lehmann and Gretta Lee Jackson.

Taboo (premieres Tuesday 21 August at 9pm)

Taboo has broken audience records in its country of origin, Belgium. The premise is as confronting as it is simple. Comedian Harley Breen spends five days and nights with members of a disadvantaged group in society and uses the experience to perform a stand-up routine about them – with the subjects sitting in the front row.

Kinne Tonight (premieres Wednesday 22 August at 9pm)

Comedian Troy Kinne ditches the stress of modern life, bringing hard-working Australians a fast-paced half-hour of laughter.

Trial by Kyle (premieres Thursday 23 August at 8.30pm)

The toughest cases, biggest celebrities and genuine disputes can only be settled by one man, radio shock jock Kyle Sandilands. As Sandilands carefully unravels each case, former The Bachelor Australia contestant and criminal lawyer Anna Heinrich is on hand to assist in forensically analysing the evidence.

Dave (premieres Friday 24 August at 8:30pm)

Funnyman Dave O’Neil opens the doors to his crazy life with on-air wife Emily Taheny in a half-hour narrative comedy. Expect laughter, tears and the appreciation of not being O’Neil.

Bring Back… Saturday Night (premieres Saturday 25 August at 7:30pm)

Join Rove McManus’ quest to reunite Australia’s greatest acts, bands, and television faces in a generation-bending live show where young performers will bring back the best of the past, and old-school entertainers will be challenged with reinvention.
