What is The Nanny?

For those who haven't seen this sitcom, it follows the comedic adventures of Fran Fine (played by Fran Drescher), a cosmetics saleswoman who accidentally becomes the nanny for a widowed (and wealthy) Broadway producer, Max Sheffield, and his three children.

Overjoyed about the announcement, Fran took to Instagram to share her excitement over the show joining HBO Max. 

"We coming to HBOMAX WooHoo!!! 4/1/21 GO!" said Fran.

The show, which ran from 1993 to 1999, featured a slew of iconic guest stars including Celine Dion, Elton John, Joan Collins, Twiggy, and Elizabeth Taylor, and most notably, solidified Fran as one of the funniest women in comedy.

For fashion fans, The Nanny also served some serious looks that are still applauded today. Fran was known for wearing some of the '90s most famous designers in episodes including Moschino, Todd Oldham, Nicole Miller, and Herve Leger. In fact, her outfits were so inspirational that there is an Instagram account even dedicated to archiving her most trendy looks.

While the show may have been off the air for a while now, the cast recently reunited for a virtual table read of the first episode. Sony Pictures released the episode which featured most of the original cast including Charles Shaughnessy, Daniel Davis, Lauren Lane, Nicholle Tom, Benjamin Salisbury, and Madeline Zima.

Fran tweeted out confirmation of the reunion saying, "SURPRISE!!! The Nanny #PANDEMICPERFORMANCE a virtual read of the pilot episode w the ORIGINAL CAST! #thenanny."
