Storyline

A Turkish remake of "The Nanny", one of the most successful sitcoms in US in 90's. Melek (Gülben Ergen), fresh out of her job as a bridal consultant in her boyfriend's shop is working as a door-to-door cosmetics saleswoman when she stumbles onto the opportunity to become nanny to the children of a wealthy media tycoon, Ömer Giritli (Kenan Isik). Once Melek realizes Giritli is not only wealthy but also a widower, she eagerly takes the job. It's a situation of blue-collar meets blue blood, as Melek gives the prim-and-proper and his problem children a dose of "street-smart logic," helping them become a healthy, happy family. Melek discovers she's got a lot of work to do with the three Giritli youngsters. Dilara (Sinem Kobal) is a pretty, yet insecure teenager in need of a boost in self-esteem. Convinced he doesn't need a nanny, Tolga (Yasar Abravaya) is a master at mischievous pranks and tormenting his sisters. Eight-year-old Duygu (Gökçe Uzuner) is a serious child who dotes on her daily... Written by Anonymous

Fran = Melek?
10 November 2004 | by (Mudgee, Australia) – See all my reviews

This show can be best summed up as 'What "The Nanny" looks like in Turkey.' Essentially the stories are the same with a simple changing of names for both characters and places to better suit the country of Turkey.

Although the children and even the nanny herself appear somewhat younger than their American counterparts they are essentially the same characters with almost identical personalities, notably the relationship between nanny and employer, and rivalry between butler and business partner.

Perhaps one thing we can all be thankful for is that Gulben Ergen lacks Fran Drescher's nasally voice and annoying laugh.
