Posted Filed under

Absolutely Fabulous: Inside Out is a new retrospective documentary on Jennifer Saunders’ beloved comedy. 

The two-hour special will reunite the show’s stars for the first time since its 2016 big screen outing.

Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Julia Sawalha and Jane Horrocks will look back at the show’s production. They’ll also pay tribute to much-missed Dame June Whitfield and celebrate Ab Fab‘s ground-breaking influence on female comedy.

The quartet will be joined by celebrity cameos and famous fans for unheard anecdotes, exclusive backstage secrets and personal reflections. From original scripts to high-fashion costumes, the documentary promises to bring viewers behind the scenes to see how the magic of Ab Fab was made.

Absolutely Fabulous creator and writer Jennifer Saunders, who played Edina, said,

“I loved making Ab Fab but I can’t remember a great deal, so much of this retrospective is a revelation to me. Thank you Gold for this kind and helpful programme.”

Joanna Lumley, who played Patsy, added,

“It was a fabulous wander down memory lane by actresses who only have the faintest grip on reality. Really thrilling, and I hope vastly entertaining. I loved every second.”

Absolutely Fabulous: Inside Out, from producers Expectation, comes to Gold later this year.
