'AbFab' Ladies Reteam for New Series
Instead, the two, along with Saunders' pre-"AbFab" partner-in-comedy
The yet-untitled series, created by Saunders, will run seven episodes. It focuses on the members of a women's club in a small English town. A newly widowed woman (Sue Johnston, "Waking the Dead") joins the club, which purports to be dedicated to truth and fellowship, but finds its members also rather enjoy a bit of good gossip.
In addition to Johnston, Saunders, French and Lumley, the show will also feature
"Absolutely Fabulous" first ran on the BBC for three seasons from 1992-95 and made its way to this country a few years later. Two more seasons and several specials have followed in the past few years.
A premiere date for the new show hasn't been determined yet.
