Kath and Kim off for 2008?
Producer Rick McKenna confirmed Jane Turner and Gina Riley were exhausted after their hit series this year. They have advised Seven they are on holiday until March.
“Gina and Jane never lock into a series until they have a good idea of what they want to do and even then they will still pause and reflect,” he told the Daily Telegraph.
“A project is never subject to a deal for them – it is about Gina and Jane feeling it is good enough and that they have a strong idea for a project and that may be something other than Kath and Kim.
“Kath and Kim have not been ruled out from another project, but whether that is a live stage show or a new series has not been decided. They may well be rested.”
With almost an 18 month turnaround from concept to screening it means there is unlikely to be any series on air next year.
The girls have traditionally liked to rest the show from becoming over-exposed, and allowing themselves time to be creative. Their focus in 2008 will no doubt be towards other projects and the development of the US series.
