'Kath' Changes Just Part of Process, Producer Says

The producer of "Kath & Kim" brushed aside questions about reports that her show is undergoing some growing pains.
Entertainment Weekly's Web site reported last week that director Paul Feig has exited the project, a remake of a hit Australian comedy. Australian media also have been pushing reports of behind-the-scenes changes.
Executive Producer Michelle Nader said she's just trying to make the show the best it can be.
"It's very, very hard to get a show right, and we want to get this show right," she said Monday during NBC's portion of the TCA press tour.
"That's the benefit of going straight to series," Ms. Nader added.
She said producers are "changing the look" of the show a bit, opening it up.
"It needs to be a celebration of these characters," Ms. Nader said. "They think of themselves as celebrities. We want to capture that."
