The flak Network Ten is copping over its ‘Pilot Week’ line-up hasn’t gone away just yet, with comedian Kitty Flanagan delivering a hilarious skit on ABC’s The Weekly last night.
In case you missed it, Ten unveiled eight new pilot programs for Australians to watch earlier this week, with the network using their feedback to help it form its content slate for 2019.
However, it quickly became obvious that Skit Happens, Dave (Dave O’Neil), Kinne Tonight (Troy Kinne), Drunk History (Rhys Darby and Stephen Curry), Taboo (Harley Breen), Trial by Kyle (Kyle Sandilands), Disgrace! (Sam Dastyari) and Bring Back…Saturday Night (Rove McManus) are all set to be captained by males.
Female industry personalities Em Rusciano, Jane Kennedy and Meshel Laurie came out criticising Ten for the lack of gender diversity in its Pilot Week line-up.
Now Flanagan has joined the chorus of criticism in a very funny skit on The Weekly, which you can check out below:
