Screen Australia has announced $5.5million of production funding for eight projects, including two feature films, two series for children and four online programs.

Among the approved projects is Cool Mum, a 12-part TikTok comedy series starring 27-year-old performer Samantha Andrews, who boasts more than 12 million likes on the video-sharing app.

The series follows a non-binary teen, Pat, who comes out to their excitable mother, who then takes the news public.

Other funded online projects include It’s a Jungle Out Here, a seven-part documentary-comedy wildlife series about two teenage filmmakers, and No Ordinary Love, a five-part YouTube series about exes searching for a missing bride.

Finally, there is Salma’s Season, a six-part YouTube series about a Pakistani-Australian wife and mother who dreams of competing at the Australian Open, even though she has never picked up a tennis racket in her life.
