I've only seen it once or twice and not sure of the show's name, but the star was a guy named Julian Clarey. I doubt very much American producers would ever have the guts to stretch the envelope as much as Mr. Clarey does. This is one of the wildest shows I've ever seen. How about an Americanized Ab-Fab. Is it possible? Cracker? Wasn't it tried? How about the gay soap opera...forget the name...but the americanized version was less cutting edge than the Brit one.

Cybill, with Cybill Shepherd and Christine Baranski, was more-or-less an Americanized AbFab...

AbFab started in 92, Cybill in 95, they SO stole the whole idea!

How about that...I have seen that show and nevr even made the association. Again, no edge. Corporations dictating content I guess. That's what's great about the BBC.....no commercials. Or am I wrong?
