In 2017, Kacie made her long form narrative debut directing all six episodes of Matt Okine’s break-up comedy The Other Guy for Stan, produced by Aquarius Films and eOne and distributed by Hulu in the US. Kacie also wrote three episodes of the upcoming second series of The Other Guy. Her other television directing credits include ABC Me’s Hardball, the sketch comedy series Wham Bam Thank-You Ma’am and the kids comedy series You’re Skitting Me for ABC3.

Kacie’s calling card was the online comedy series Fragments of Friday which she wrote, directed and starred in, with news.com.au heralding Kacie as ‘Australia’s answer to Amy Schumer’ and The Huffington Post celebrating the show’s ‘unashamedly bold superstar female talent.’ Fragments of Friday has been selected for various international festivals, including Raindance Film Festival where it won Best Ensemble Cast. In 2016, Kacie won the Australian Directors Guild Award for Best Direction in an Original Online Project for Series 2 of Fragments of Friday.

Kacie recently directed two episodes of a new Amazon series titled Upload under the guidance of Greg Daniels (creator of the US adaptation of The Office).
