Other People’s Problems has been chosen as an Official Selection for the sixth anniversary of Australia’s largest international web series festival Melbourne WebFest.

The Australian dramedy webseries created by Penelope Chai and Jane Dickenson, directed by Erin White, produced by Charlotte Seymour and executive produced by Sue Maslin, has been nominated for the categories of ‘Best Australian Drama’ and ‘Best Director’ at the festival.

The webseries launched on ABC iView in December 2017, and all five episodes are available now to stream online.
