Logo Gets "Absolutely Fabulous," Darling!

Logo Acquires Complete Series of Hit British Sitcom "Absolutely Fabulous"

Weekend Marathon Launches Series Premiere Beginning Saturday, April 16th

NEW YORK, March 24, 2011 -- Logo announced today it acquired the complete, five-season series of the camp, cult-hit "Absolutely Fabulous." To kick off the Logo premiere, "Absolutely Fabulous" will launch with a weekend-long marathon beginning Saturday, April 16th at 2 p.m. ET/PT. The series will move to its permanent timeslot with episodes airing every Thursday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Logo.

"Absolutely Fabulous" takes an outrageous journey into the world of fad-obsessed friends where nothing is sacred and no one is spared in their quest for fame and style. The series' outlandish characters, its award-winning acting and hard-hitting humor quickly made this series an international television favorite.

"When it comes to 'OMFG' television, 'Ab Fab' sets the bar with its notorious, hard-partying duo Patsy and Edina," says Marc Leonard, SVP of Multiplatform Programming, Logo. "This irreverent series about the ultimate anti-heroes changed the face of comedy and fits beautifully with Logo's fierce programming."

"Absolutely Fabulous" follows publicist Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) and her best friend, fashion director Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) as they live the life of excess in every possible way. The sitcom chronicles these middle-aged women and their desperate attempt to do anything to stay relevant and hip. As they teeter toward decadence through alcohol, cigarettes and fashion, Edina and Patsy find themselves in unbelievable, hilarious situations. Their poor judgment and misadventures include a full cast of eccentric characters including Saffy (Julia Sawalha), Edina's voice-of-reason daughter; Bubble, Edina's babbling, animated assistant; and Edina's oblivious mother.
