Shannon will play the role of Kath Day-Knight in the US version of the Aussie sitcom.
The sitcom, under development by NBC executive Ben Silverman (Ugly Betty, The Office, The Biggest Loser), has yet to declare its own ‘Kim.’
The show is now being put together by Michelle Nader (Dharma and Greg, King of Queens) after earlier announcing it would be writer Nancy Pimental (‘The Sweetest Thing’). The show has suffered several production delays as producers seek to put together the right creative team, and Silverman has moved up the ladder to a top role at NBC after he had optioned the sitcom.
Turner and Riley remain as Producers on the US version.
