Saunders Pens An “Absolutely Fabulous” Film

Jennifer Saunders is planning a feature film version of classic BBC TV sitcom “Absolutely Fabulous” reports Deadline.

The show ran from 1992 until 1995, and was revived in 2001 for three more years before wrapping with a New Year’s special in 2004. Three more special episodes have been filmed to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary with the first to air in the UK at Christmas.

Saunders hopes to pen the feature film next year once she wraps work on the Spice Girls London stage musical Viva Forever. There’s already a brief synopsis as well with the setup being eccentric best friends Edina and Patsy wake up hungover in the empty drifting yacht of an oligarch in the middle of the ocean. Even worse, their cellphones can’t get a signal.
