NBC Picks Up Comedy “Kath and Kim” February 7, 2008 12:23 am

Posted by Rosario T. Calabria in 2007/2008 TV Season, Kath and Kim, NBC, News, Television.

Sticking to their word to pick up shows straight to series without pilot shoots, NBC has ordered six episodes of the comedy Kath and Kim.

The project was originally picked up last year as a pilot, but was never made because of difficulties in casting the leads. It’s based on the hit Australian series of the same name, which focuses on the dysfunctional relationship between Kath (Molly Shannon) and her daughter Kim (Selma Blair).

“This hilarious new series exemplifies how we are changing the pilot process by ordering shows that we believe in and green-lighting them straight to series,” Silverman said. “We are confident that this proven international hit will effortlessly translate to American audiences and we couldn’t be more excited that Molly and Selma will be playing the leads.”

The pilot script was written by Michell Nader, and is executive produced by the original series creators Gina Riley, Jane Turner and Rick McKenna.
