Sundance Channel has acquired the U.S. rights to the Australian comedy “Kath & Kim.” Sundance has ordered the first three seasons of the show, a single-camera series following a dysfunctional suburban family a la “Arrested Development.” The series was the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s most popular show from 2002 to 2004.

“We are delighted to bring all three seasons to the Sundance Channel audience, who will be drawn in by the unique and idiosyncratic storytelling and enthralled by the exceptional talents of the creators and stars of this hilarious show,” said Laura Michalchyshyn, executive VP of programming and marketing for Sundance Channel.
