’90s prime-timer “The Nanny” may be making a return, star Fran Drescher teased today.
The actress, talking to Entertainment Tonight for the 25th anniversary of the sitcom, teased that a revival of the CBS sitcom might be on the cards.
“We’re talking about it,” she admitted. “Peter [Marc Jacobson] and I are talking about it.”
Running 1993 thru 1999, Drescher and Jacobson’s half-hour laffer was based on her own life growing up in Queens.
“The thing is our show would be the same characters 20 years later,” she said in regards to a redo. “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.”
Said Drescher and Jacobson, who were married at one stage, are working on other projects too.
“We’re working on a very big project. It’s going to be very exciting for the fans, but I’m not at liberty to announce it yet. But it’s gonna be big.”
“The Nanny” also starred Charles Shaughnessy, Daniel Davis, Lauren Lane, Madeline Zima and Nicholle Tom.
