[via press release from Oxygen]



The Latest Ab Fab Special Premieres on Friday, April 1 At 10:00 p.m.* and Guest Stars Nathan Lane, Laurie Metcalf, Miranda Richardson and Terence Conran


NEW YORK, March 7, 2005 -- As usual, the world is turned upside-down in the Monsoon household for those loveably clueless Ab Fab ladies and their families in the latest Absolutely Fabulous special, premiering exclusively in the U.S. on Oxygen, Friday April 1 at 10:00 p.m. In this installment, Saffron goes off to Africa to marry the father of her daughter Jane, or Lola, as Grandma Edina has taken to calling her and comes back with a bombshell about her new husband. In her absence, Edina has a redecorating crisis and uses regression therapy to glean inspiration for her new kitchen - a move that might just be the final straw for her long-suffering daughter.

The Absolutely Fabulous special, entitled �White Box,� guest stars Miranda Richardson as Edina�s fresh-out-of-the-mental-institution decorator Bettina, whose inspiration for the kitchen�s new design is the Holocaust. Nathan Lane guest stars as Kunz, Edina�s regular German minimalist decorator who sends her to regression therapy for design inspiration, and Roseanne�s Laurie Metcalf as Crystalline, Edina�s celebrity regression therapist. Renowned home designer Terence Conran guest stars as himself.

�White Box� is Executive Produced by Jon Plowman and is a Saunders & French Production for the BBC in association with Oxygen.
