This Television Series inspired Kath & Kim
Kath & Kim is a character-driven Australian television satirical situation comedy series created by Jane Turner and Gina Riley. Turner and Riley also play the title characters: a suburban mother and daughter with a dysfunctional relationship. The series' main characters consist of Kath Day-Knight, a cheerful 50-year-old woman, her self-indulgent daughter Kim Craig, Kath's boyfriend and second husband, the metrosexual Kel Knight, as well as Kim's estranged husband Brett Craig and her lonely, overweight "second best friend" Sharon Strzelecki. The series is set in Fountain Lakes, a fictional suburb of Melbourne, Victoria. It is primarily filmed in Patterson Lakes. The series lampoons suburban living, particularly kitsch lower-middle-class Australian people, who are colloquially known in the country as "bogans".
