The creators of Packed To The Rafters are to share the story of how they created the drama juggernaut at Mumbrella360.

As well as Packed To The Rafters, the duo’s other other recent creation is lottery drama Winners & Loser along with the forthcoming A Place To Call Home. Lee also wrote the first episode of Home & Away.

Holmes has executive produced series including Blue Heelers, Home and Away, All Saints, Packed to the Rafters and Winners & Losers.
