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

When the show was broadcast in the UK, many viewers wrote in to chide Charles Shaughnessy over his "fake" English accent, and suggested he practice with co-star Daniel Davis on how to do a proper English accent. The cast found this quite amusing, as Shaughnessy is a native Englishman born in London, while Davis is an American born in Arkansas. See more »

Goofs

The bedroom arrangement constantly changes. You can see them use the bedroom near Maxwell's room for all three kids through out the series. You can even see Brighton going into Maxwell's room when being told to go into his own. See more »

Quotes

Max: [Fran is standing at the door, waiting for a celebrity she isn't allowed to meet] Miss Fine!
Fran: I'm seeing the children off to school.
Max: They left an hour ago!
Fran: It's a clear day, I can see forever.

It hasn't been that long
20 May 2004 | by (MidWest) – See all my reviews

I can't believe it has only been a few years since The Nanny went off the air. I didn't watch when it was on the network but have been watching the syndicated shows on cable. Funny stuff! Fran isn't afraid to fall on her face (her physical comedy is hilarious!) or let others have funny lines. That makes for a good show. Her occasional quick glance at the audience makes us feel as though we are "in on it" somehow.

Lifetime has announced that there will be a special "The Nanny Reunion" for the 2004-2005 season. Yea! I can't wait to see what has happened to Niles and C.C., Fran and Maxwell, Yetta and Sylvia. What kind of mother is Fran? How old will the twins be?
