A Kate way to start your day!

 

Having conquered the cutthroat world of satirical online cooking shows the two Kates are ready to take a Sassy Swipe at morning lifestyle television in Get Krack!n.

 

Series 1 was described by critics as “the finest satire ever put to air on Australian television”, was awarded an AWGIE for Best Comedy Series and nominated for the same category at the Screen Producers Australia Awards. 

Series 2 had a huge social media response which saw #getkrackin trending each week an episode aired, and extensive media coverage which lauded it as "must-watch tv", "one for the history books" and "comedy at its groundbreaking best". The second series was once again nominated for Best Comedy at the Screen Producers Australia Awards.
