Fran Drescher teases ‘The Nanny’ reboot

Fran Drescher has graduated from considering a “Nanny” reboot to fully talking about it potentially being in the works.

“We’re talking about it. Peter and I are talking about it,” Drescher told “Entertainment Tonight,” referring to ex-husband and collaborator Peter Marc Jacobson, who co-created the sitcom with her.

“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.”

Should the reboot get greenlit, Drescher said her character would probably be different from the original Queens gal who nannied for a wealthy family and wooed her dashing boss Maxwell Sheffield.

“She would’ve maybe gotten involved in more things [that] Fran Drencher is involved with,” she said. “All kinds of things from environmental issues, to health, to civil liberties, that’s what I think Fran would be doing now — opening her big Queens mouth for the greater good.”

Though the series ended with Fran and Mr. Sheffield tying the knot and having kids of their own, Drescher said the new series couldn’t just continue with the same storyline.

She added, “The thing is our show would be the same characters 20 years later. We can’t just pick up where we left off,” she said. “But in a way, that could be really good because the show can have a whole fresh bend to it.”
