Bridesmaids director Paul Feig is to produce a new series for Sky Atlantic.

Ronna & Beverly is a mock talkshow featuring two forthright, middle-aged Jewish American mothers as hosts.

The title characters are played by American writers and performers Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo.

A pilot episode, featuring Mad Men star Jon Hamm and Episodes actor Stephen Mangan as guests, has already been filmed.

"British audiences responded to these overbearing American characters, and the show is Ab Fab meets everyone's obnoxious parents who ask horrifying questions," Feig told Deadline.

Feig previously created NBC's Freaks & Geeks and has worked as a producer and director on Nurse Jackie and The Office.

His US-based company Classy Productions will co-produce Ronna & Beverly with the UK's Hat Trick Productions.

Other comedy projects in development at Sky Atlantic include Kathy Burke's Walking and Talking and historical comedy Hunderby starring Julia Davis
