They’re making a new version of Absolutely Fabulous.
The Americans. (Hello dears, btw.)
Oof, now then. The Office? Yes. One Foot In The Grave? No. (Remember that one? Bill Cosby?). Erm, okay, it’s actually just come to our attention that there actually haven’t been that many American versions of British comedies. Not that actually made it past mood-board stage. They keep threatening us with The Vicar of Dibley, Kirsty Alley stylee, but not a whiff of that as of yetteth. Eee.
But we’ll tell you what we do know. They’re (the Americans *waves*) making their own version of our dear, dear, dearly beloved Absolutely Fabulous. In that a pilot has been ordered. Just so long as it’s not that fella-me-lad who likes diving into the Hudson. Brrrr.
The good bit is that they’ve got Jennifer Saunders in as exec producer (which basically just means kerching).
The news we’ve not made up our minds about is that it’ll be set in Los Angeles. New York would make more sense.
No idea who the turns will be.
So let’s now watch a random selection of Ab Fab clips yanked off-of YouTube… It’s not like anyone’s got any work to do. It’s a recession, put your feet up…
