Yes the Patsy & Edina specials were a hit, flicks like The In Betweeners have been huge winners and not to mention the sell out concert tours from French & Saunders have all culminated and finally a big green light has been switched on for the ‘ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS’ MOVIE.
Jennifer Saunders alighted that the film will be set in the French Riviera when she told New York Magazine : “I’m aiming to shoot this in a beautiful part of the Riviera. I fancy the south of France in the spring.”
ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS repeats are currently running on ABC 1. The background on the hugely popular show from Throng:
“Absolutely Fabulous has aired sporatically over the past three decades. Three seasons ran between 1992 and 1995, two specials aired in 1996, two more seasons and a special ran between 2001 and 2003 with three more specials airing between 2003 and 2005.
