Molly Shannon and Selma Blair are Kath & Kim

Molly ShannonWith casting finally complete, NBC can begin to think about how nice it would be to start work on Kath & Kim if they had any writers. Based on an Australian hit by the same name, the series focuses on the relationship problems between a mother (Molly Shannon as "Kath") and her daughter (Selma Blair as "Kim"). The series was originally picked up a year ago but languished due to casting concerns. It was deemed that the main characters had to be cast perfectly for this to work.

Meanwhile, Molly Shannon has stayed busy with a brilliant turn on Pushing Daisies while Selma Blair wowed geeks across the world as Liz Sherman in Hellboy, a role she will reprise in the sequel. Now they'll be able to come together and try to be the most delightfully dysfunctional mother-daughter duo since Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. Hell, if it can get half the critical acclaim that Gilmore Girls did, Kath & Kim will be off to a great start.

I'll give them kudos for casting the beautiful and talented Blair opposite Shannon. And just never you mind that Shannon is 43 and Blair 35. Eight year olds get pregnant all the time in this country. All the time! Who are you to judge. Shame on you! Maybe they were raised in the Spears family.

I love Molly Shannon, but why ruin a wonderful, hilarious Aussie show by trying to import it to the states? Watch the original on the Sundance channel, and give Molly something else to do. One word.."Coupling!"

Let's not forget Molly's other recent bit of awesomeness: Mike White's "Year of the Dog." Rent it!!
