Wrong Sweetie, wrong: Filming starts on US Ab Fab remake

Kristen Johnston and Kathryn Hahn have started work on the American remake of the classic British series Absolutely Fabulous.

The original series, staring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley ran from 1992 to roughly 2005.

The shots of the American series would suggest that they are being faithful to the original in terms of clothing. The chances of them getting the rest of it right: slim at best. Typical of an American television industry lacking in original thought.
