Packed To The Rafters
- 6 Seasons
Packed to the Rafters is an award winning Australian family-oriented show following the life of the Rafter family. A lighthearted mix of comedy and drama, the show tackles serious social issues as it weaves the story of the Rafter Family. Each episode is narrated by a member of the family, which changes often. The show begins with electrician Dave Rafter and his wife, Julie, excited but nostalgic about their three children becoming adults and moving out of the house. Instead, their son Ben moves next door, their daughter Rachel finds trouble finishing any task and returns home and their first born, Nathan, faces misfortune that leads him to move back home with his wife. Packed to the Rafters was created by Bevan Lee, and stars Rebecca Gibney as Julie Rafter, Erik Thomson as Dave Rafter, Hugh Sheridan as Ben Rafter, Angus McLaren as Nathan Rafter, Sabella Storey as Ruby Rafter, and Jessica Marais as Rachel Rafter.
