  • Absolutely Fabulous, also known as Ab Fab, is a British television sitcom created by, written by and starring Jennifer Saunders. It is based on the 1990 French & Saunders sketch "Modern Mother and Daughter", created by Saunders and Dawn French. The series features Saunders as Edina Monsoon, a heavy-drinking, drug-abusing PR agent who spends her time failing to lose weight and chasing bizarre fads in a desperate attempt to stay young and "hip". Edina is joined by magazine fashion director Patsy Stone (played by Joanna Lumley), whose drug abuse, alcohol consumption and desperate promiscuity far eclipse Edina's. Edina is reliant upon the support of her daughter Saffron (Julia Sawalha), a student and aspiring writer whose constant care of her immature mother has left her a bitter cynic. The series also stars June Whitfield as Edina's dotty, sarcastic and often thieving mother, and Jane Horrocks as Edina's utterly brainless personal assistant Bubble. In 2000, the show was ranked number 17 on the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes by the British Film Institute. Absolutely Fabulous returned for three special episodes which were originally aired on 25 December 2011, 1 January 2012 and 23 July 2012 to mark the show's 20th anniversary. The episode broadcast on 23 July 2012 featured the 2012 Summer Olympics which were being held in London that week. A film based on the series was released to theatres on 1 July 2016. On 28 November 2016, Saunders announced that the series had ended. (en)
