Absolutely Fabulous isn’t going ahead at FOX. Despite early talk the pilot was “hot, hot hot,” executives are said to have wondered if it was really for their audience.
It isn’t the first time the US has tried to adapt the hit series -the last time was with Roseanne Barr and Carrie Fisher. This time the script was from Saturday Night Live writer Christine Zander. Jennifer Saunders was involved as an executive producer, but who knows how hands on she was…
Relocated to LA the US version has Kathryn Hahn as Eddie and Kristen Johnston as Patsy.
