‘Ab Fab’ Ressurection: Part Deux

By: Betsy Waldman / October 7, 2008

Get your passport, sweetie darling! Jennifer Saunders‘ cult classic comedy series Absolutely Fabulous is headed to America—again.

The series follows two narcissistic, intoxicated older gals, perpetually hunting for youth, glamour and gratuitous praise. The original show ran on the BBC from 1992 to 1996, and was later resurrected from 2001 to 2005.

Fox will update the British import against the backdrop of Los Angeles, with support from the creative teams behind Arrested Development and Saturday Night Live.

This isn’t the first stab at Ab Fab for America. Over ten years ago, then-comedy queen Roseanne Barr snatched up rights to the property and attempted an ill-fated remake starring Carrie Fisher.
