Selma Blair has joined the cast of NBC's upcoming comedy pilot Kath and Kim. According to The Hollywood Reporter, she will be playing opposite Molly Shannon in the Reveille/Universal Media Studios project.

Blair will play Kim, the daughter of Shannon's Kath. The plot of the series, which is based on an Australian sitcom of the same name, will look at the dysfunctional relationship between these two women.

The pilot will go into production a little later this year for a possible fall airdate.
