NEW YORK, NY – January 18, 2012 – One is not enough, sweetie darling! Patsy and Edina return for another “Absolutely Fabulous” special on Logo! The second of three new “Absolutely Fabulous” 20th Anniversary Specials will have its U.S. premiere Monday, February 6, 10:30 PM/9:30c on Logo.
In the last “Absolutely Fabulous” special, Patsy and Edina had (hardly) succeeded in reinventing their “Identity” for the 21st century. In the newest special, titled “Job,” Edina takes on a celebrity client who wants to sing. When Edina discovers how awful her client’s voice really is, she’ll need to recruit some help from her other clients, Emma Bunton from the “Spice Girls” and Lulu, to help prepare the client for her upcoming debut
Twenty years ago the world was introduced to Edina (aka Eddy), Patsy (aka Pats) and Saffron (aka Saffy). It has never been quite the same. Eddy “PR’d things.” She was into every new fad and fashion imaginable and was often to be found at the bottom of a champagne glass, actually more likely a bottle. Not much has changed. Her best friend Patsy worked in magazines and lived the high life. She still does. Eddy’s daughter Saffy was hard-working, all but ignored by her mother and hated by Patsy. Eddy’s mother was and is, well, her mother.
The “Absolutely Fabulous” 20th Anniversary specials are written by and starring Jennifer Saunders (“Edina Monsoon”), with Joanna Lumley (“Patsy Stone”), Julia Sawalha (“Saffy Monsoon”), Jane Horrocks (“Bubble”) and June Whitfield (“Mother”) returning in their iconic roles.
“Absolutely” Fabulous is a Saunders and French production for BBC, co-produced by BBC AMERICA and Logo.
