Cult British comedy Absolutely Fabulous
is getting a makeover for American TV. Bosses at the Fox network have signed to make a U.S. version of the hit BBC show - which ran in the U.K. from 1992 to 1996 and 2001 to 2005.
The show starred Jennifer Saunders
and Joanna Lumley
as booze-swilling fashionistas, and went on to win a Bafta Award and an Emmy.
Saturday Night Live
writer Christine Zander will helm the U.S. version, and is working with Saunders on the pilot, which is slated to debut later this year.
