Salma’s Season: a new Australian comedy show that tackles Muslim stereotypes

A new TV comedy series, written and directed by Kauthar Abdulalim and shot in Melbourne, aims to smash Muslim stereotypes in Australia.

Salma’s Season is a new show chronicling the Australian adventures of Salma, a 45-year-old Australian-Pakistani woman whose traditional world is turned upside-down when she rebels against her role as a dutiful wife and doting mother to chase her dream of playing at the Australian Open.

Blacksand Pictures have just released first look photos from the series, which will be a 6 x 5-minute comedy-drama available to stream soon.
