All six seasons of The Nanny will now be accessible for streaming on HBO Max, commencing from April 1.
The Nanny is finally headed to a streaming service, HBO Max, starting from April 1. The news was basically concealed in a press release from the streamer, filled to the verge with what fans should be expecting to watch next month.
The Nanny, starring Fran Drescher, aired between 1993 and 1999. The series follows a fashionista who appears at the doorstep of the very fancy Maxwell Sheffield, played by Charles Shaughnessy, after being kicked out of her bridal salon job by her boyfriend and becomes the nanny of Mr. Sheffield’s three kids.
The theme song goes,
“Who would have guessed that the girl we described was just exactly what the doctor prescribed?”
In April 2020, Drescher told E! News that she believes Fran and Max (who wed in the end after seasons of teasing) would clearly still be together today, and Fran would either be in fashion or government.
“I think Fran would have gotten involved in a fashion blog on how to look like a million bucks on a shoestring budget. Or maybe she might’ve gotten involved in local politics. She always did have a voice for the underdog, for the union workers.”Fran Drescher
Drescher is presently working on turning The Nanny into a Broadway musical with help from ex-husband and show co-creator Peter Marc Jacobson and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creator Rachel Bloom. She’s also got dreams of a TV revival.
“Peter came up with the brilliant idea that Fran and Max moved back to New York because he missed Broadway and, for lack of a better idea. Fran says, “Why don’t you do a show about us?” And then, the whole first season would be about him producing the show that’s actually on Broadway.”Fran Drescher
About The Nanny
The Nanny is an Emmy-winning American television sitcom that originally aired on CBS from November 3, 1993, to June 23, 1999, starring Fran Drescher who also created and produced the show along with her then-husband Peter Marc Jacobson. The show takes much of its inspiration from Drescher’s personal life growing up in Queens, involving names and characteristics based on her relatives and friends.
After a Jewish fashionista from Flushing, New York gets fired from her job and dumped by her boyfriend, Fran Fine (Fran Drescher) is mistaken as applying for a nanny for widowed Maxwell Sheffield, who has three children, Maggie, Brighton, and Grace.
