Drug Abuse, drunken brawls, cigarettes, orgies, fights, and of course Fashion! Labels! Labels! Labels! darling. Its about What’s In! What’s Now! the rest of the world be dammed!
Ab Fab premiered in Britain 1993. A few years later the show was broadcast in the US via Comedy Central . Ab Fab sporadic run (sorta likes Cher’s farewell tour) finally ended with a special in 2012.
The British Film Institute ranked Ab Fab as the 17th greatest British TV show of all time. The “Fashion” episode was ranked 47 as TV Guide’s 100 Greatest Episodes of all time. It also appears twice on TV Guide’s Top Cult Show Ever List.
Plans for an American version of Ab Fab never materialized. There are many who believe the show would lose its edge here.
The show continues in syndication all over the world.
The Movie Premiered in New York Monday and opens nationally on Friday July 22.
