NBC ANNOUNCES SERIES PICKUP OF NEW 'KATH & KIM' COMEDY STARRING MOLLY SHANNON AND SELMA BLAIR

BURBANK -- February 5, 2008 -- NBC has announced a series pickup of the American adaptation of the Australian hit comedy series "Kath & Kim," starring Molly Shannon (NBC's "Saturday Night Live") and Selma Blair ("Legally Blonde"). The pickup was announced today by Ben Silverman, Co-Chairman, NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios.

"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," said Silverman. "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."

"Kath & Kim," a series adapted from Australia's hit comedy of the same title, is a look into the minutiae of middle-class suburbia that digs deep into the daily lives of Kath, a cheerful, forty-something divorcee, and her self-absorbed daughter, Kim. It's the love and hate, push and pull, of the dysfunctional relationship only a mother and daughter could share.

Michelle Nader ("King of Queens") will serve as executive producer and writer of the series. Original series creators and stars Gina Riley and Jane Turner will serve as executive producers of the series along with Nader, original series executive producer Rick McKenna and Paul Feig (who is directing the first episode). The series is a production from Reveille for Universal Media Studios.
