Storyline

Fran Fine, a whiny, nasal-voiced Jewish woman from Flushing, New York, has just been fired from her job and abandoned by her boyfriend. She ends up selling cosmetics in Manhattan. This takes her to the home of Maxwell Sheffield, a rich, widowed English Broadway producer. She is mistaken to be applying for the job of nanny to Maxwell's three children and is hired for that purpose. She becomes quite attached to the children, Maggie, Brighton, and Grace, and becomes great friends with the butler, Niles. There is sexual tension between her and Mr. Sheffield, which is complicated by the fact that his business partner, C.C. Babcock, likes him. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

After cancellation of her sitcom Princesses (1991), Fran Drescher flew to Europe to meet her former co-star Twiggy. On her flight to London, she coincidently sat next to CBS executive Jeff Sagansky and talked him into a development meeting upon her return to Los Angeles. Subsequently meeting Twiggy and her children in London, Drescher came up with the idea of The Nanny (1993) and pitched it later to Sagansky convincing him to produce it. See more »

Goofs

When people are leaving through the inner front door, they often turn right (exiting the stage) rather than going through the outer front doors. While not noticeable from side views of people leaving, his flaw can be seen from shots behind the characters as they leave. See more »

This show taught me to speak english!
21 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

That's right, it might sound stupid or crazy, but I learned english only by watching this show with subtitles! I Which means, I love this show! I loved it so much that I taped it and watched them over and over again, it's awesome. It's so hilarious and it really sux that it's over...

Just think about "The Sound of Music" same plot, different place, time and situations, all of them hilarious! Fran Drescher does an outstanding job as Fran, and the rest of the cast are equally good, especially Daniel Davis and Lauren Lane, As Niles and CC. Charles Shaughnessy is good too as Mr Sheffield. And how can I forget about Renee Taylor (Sylvia), Rachael Chagall (Val) and Ann Gilbert (Yetta), they totally steal the show :)

This sit-com is so good, that they even had tons of great guests, such as Liz Taylor, Rossie O'Donell, Elton John, Coolio, etc..... Anyways if you like light comedy and if you are not annoyed by Fran's voice, this is a must see comedy! ***** out of *****
