Kath & Kim, a remake of a very funny Australian show, is in full swing this week. Now comes word that others are jumping on the remake bandwagon with the news that an updated version of Jennifer Saunder’s even funnier British hit, Absolutely Fabulous, is being planned for American TV. The premise will remain the same, and will focus on “the friendship of two boozy, over-40 best friends who are desperate to stay hip and youthful and who carry on under the disapproving eye of Edina’s teenage daughter, Saffy.” In other words, a TV show about every over-the-hill A-list actress living in Los Angeles?
