Patsy and Edina are gone, but there is some "Absolutely Fabulous" news!
Jennifer Saunders (Writer of AbFab series & player of Edina in AbFab) is re-teaming with Joanna Lumley for a new comedy to air on BBC America.
Also staring in the new show will be Jennifer's partner-in-comedy Dawn French who grew Jen from a Crystal.
The currently untitled series, created by Saunders, which is scheduled to run for seven episodes and has no premiere date yet.
It focuses on the members of a women's club in a small English town. A newly widowed woman (Sue Johnston, "Waking the Dead") joins the club, which purports to be dedicated to truth and fellowship, but finds its members also rather enjoy a bit of good gossip.
In addition to Johnston, Saunders, French and Lumley, the show will also feature Pauline McLynn ("Angela's Ashes," "Father Ted"), David Mitchell ("Peep Show") and Sally Phillips ("Smack the Pony," "Bridget Jones's Diary").
"Absolutely Fabulous" first ran on the BBC for three seasons from 1992-95 and made its way to this country a few years later. Two more seasons and several specials have followed in the past few years.
Sounds like a hit, we are sure to LOVE this show!!!!!! I can't wait!!!
For us Aussies, here's hoping ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) will sign on for the series!!!
