The 46 year-old Friends star is making her US TV comeback by both producing and appearing in the show, which is based on the BBC version. Kudrow explained the show's premise to Parade magazine: "They (the producers) chose six people, all celebrities... and they trace our family trees and film us against those actual backgrounds."

About her own very moving experience, Kudrow added:

"They took me back to Belarus to find a cousin who survived the Holocaust but is dead now... It was not a vacation."

The show -- an adaptation of the UK series -- is expected to air in the spring.
