Last month we got our first look at comedic actresses Kristen Johnston and Kathryn Hahn in full costume on the set of the US remake of the British TV series Absolutely Fabulous here in SoCal filming their first scenes for the series. Ab Fab, as it will be called here in US, is well into production of their first eps and here is our first look at a scene from the series pilot:
I’m still a bit suspicious of this planned remake of Absolutely Fabulous … I mean, it sounds like a great idea in theory but it really all comes down to execution. I tried and tried to really love the US remake of Kath & Kim but it so pales in comparison to the original that I could never really get into the remake. That being said, I never had the same love of the original version of Absolutely Fabulous and I did for the original Aussie version of Kath & Kim. I’m willing to give this Ab Fab series a shot … it could be very funny … but, again, it all comes down to execution. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Are any of y’all looking forward to seeing this remake or are you just totally uninterested?
