NBC has signed frequent Judd Apatow collaborator Paul Feig (Freaks and Geeks) to direct the pilot for the Molly Shannon comedy Kath & Kim, according to Variety.

Feig, a screenwriter/actor/director, recently had a role in Apatow's Knocked Up. The duo co-created Freaks and Geeks and Feig directed Apatow's short-lived Fox series Undeclared.

Kath & Kim is based on an Australian format about a woman and her daughter. Universal Media Studios and Reveille are producing the project, which -- barring any strike-related difficulties -- is expected to start shooting later this fall.
