Ab Fab up for its 2nd Emmy

...after 18 years!

The Absolutely Fabulous 20th anniversary specials, Sky 1's Spy and Charlie Brooker's dark satire Black Mirror have all been nominated for International Emmy awards.

Spy and Ab Fab, which won an International Emmy 18 years ago, are up for best comedy series alongside Brazil's The Invisible Woman and Belgium's What If.

The nomination could provide a fillip for Spy's hopes of begin remade in America, where the ABC network is developing a pilot.

Meanwhile, Black Mirror has been shortlisted in the TV movie/mini-series category, alongside entrants from Japan, Brazil and France.

The awards – which honour non-US shows – will be presented in New York on November 19.
