Fran Drescher spilled that there have been discussions for a possible “The Nanny” revival.
Drescher revealed to Entertainment Tonight that the sitcom, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, may be headed back to the small screen.
“We’re talking about it,” she says. “Peter [Marc Jacobson] and I are talking about it.”
Drescher and her ex-husband Marc Jacobson created the show, based loosely on her life growing up in Queens, New York, in 1993. It chronicled the adventures of Fran Fine as she became the nanny to British Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield’s three children. The sitcom would go on for six seasons before ending in 1999.
“The thing is our show would be the same characters 20 years later. We can’t just pick up where we left off. But in a way, that could be really good because the show can have a whole fresh bend to it,” Drescher says.
As for what her sitcom counterpart would be up to these days, Drescher believes she would be politically outspoken.
“That’s what I think Fran would be doing now — opening her big Queens mouth for the greater good,” Drescher says.
