BURBANK, Calif., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- NBC has announced it's picking up the U.S. adaptation of the Australian hit comedy TV series "Kath & Kim."

The U.S. version of the show from down under stars "Saturday Night Live" alum Molly Shannon and "Legally Blonde" and "Hellboy" star 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," Ben Silverman, co-chairman of NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios, said in a statement.

"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."

NBC said the series will take a look at "the minutiae of middle-class suburbia that digs deep into the daily lives of Kath, a cheerful, 40-something divorcee, and her self-absorbed daughter, Kim."
