The new foxy morons...
Finally some pictures from the US remake of Kath and Kim - well one picture anyway.
Molly Shannon (left) plays Kath, while Selma Blair plays her annoying daughter Kim.
Blair looks trashy enough (though a little too thin), but Shannon looks too young. She needs to be aged a bit more.
There is quite a buzz about the American adaptation. It's being driven by TV supremo, Ben Silverman - who was behind The Biggest Loser and Ugly Betty.
It's been programmed to follow the US version of The Office which is a rating success (and another of Silverman's shows) and the NBC network has ordered six more episodes based on the pilot (this never happens).
But am I gonna like it? Who knows? I wasn't a big fan of Kath and Kim when it came out (I actually missed most of the third series), but I really love Molly Shannon. and think Selma Blair could easily pull off a great Kim.
Once again, I'm just gonna have to wait and see. It could be another bitter disappointment or a pleasant surprise.
Thanks to TV Tonight for the pic.
