Absolutely Fabulous - BBC America Video: Marathon Promo Jan 1 '12

Source: BBC America



Cast includes Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Julia Sawalha, June Whitfield and Jane Horrocks.

A caustic and clever Britcom about two neurotic gal pals who are dedicated followers of fashion. Edina's (Jennifer Saunders) in PR, while Patsy's (Joanna Lumley) a magazine editor, though work isn't something they do very often. Drinking is, however, as is man-chasing (sometimes literally). Costar Jennifer Saunders created the series.
