The eccentric British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous (better known as AbFab), which was a hit stateside in the '90s, is being remade in the United States this year, with a pilot episode ordered by Fox.

Casting is not officially complete, but late last week Kristen Johnston (3rd Rock From the Sun) participated in a table-read of the script, according to Variety. Recent appearances for Johnston include a role in the film Bride Wars as well as guest spots on Sex and the City and ER. Also participating in the table-read was actress Kathryn Hahn (Revolutionary Road).

If Johnston and Hahn are cast in the pilot, they will play the roles of overindulging, fame- and fashion-obsessed Edina and Patsy, respectively.

The original AbFab was written by Jennifer Saunders, who played Edina, with Joanna Lumley as Patsy, and aired on the BBC network. The American AbFab script was written by Christine Zander, who will also be executive producer of the show, along with Saunders. (Advocate.com)
