Kalee was invited to join the Australians in Film Writer’s Room where she developed a one hour dramedy “Covert Kids”.
Her latest project is “Weddings Inc.” a half hour sitcom about a Latino single mother who runs a wedding planning business with her gay florist brother, her sycophant assistant and her teenage daughter who thinks they’re all lame.
She recently directed and produced the cold open of “Weddings Inc.” as a short film to promote the show to prospective producers, agents and managers.
