For those unfamiliar with the show, the series is about a heavy-drinking, drug-abusing PR agent named Edina Monsoon who is always after the latest fashions – no matter how crazy they may be. Edina's best friend, Patsy Stone, who abuses drugs and alcohol way more than Edina, joins Edina on all her wild adventures. 

Production is said to begin October 12 in London with Mandie Fletcher directing along with Jon Plowman and Damian Jones as producers.
