Aussie mother and daughter act heading for the big screen
A film version of Australian sitcom Kath & Kim has got the go-ahead.
The cult sitcom, originally shown in the UK on BBC2, has been given production money from government agency Screen Australia in its latest round of funding.
Dubbed The Kath & Kim Filum, the picture will see the mother and daughter duo head off on an overseas adventure, reports Variety magazine.
Screen Australia chief Ruth Harley said: “Australia’s comedic sensibility is world-renowned and is a distinctive part of our cultural identity. The Kath & Kim Filum represents iconic Australian comedy.”
Kath & Kim‘s TV run ended in 2007 after four seasons, after which an ill-fated US version was developed starring Selma Blair.
