Fran Drescher (the nanny herself) has recently announced plans to turn the hit TV show 'The Nanny' into a live stage-show!

"We are so excited to be working on the Broadway musical The Nanny." Fran and one of the show's producers said.

"Nobody is cast yet – we’re plotting – but we feel confident we will find a fabulous actress who is funny, charming and has a great voice."

The musical is set to feature songs written by Rachel Bloom who also wrote and starred in the hit show 'Crazy Ex Girlfriend', which is available to stream on Netflix.

"The Nanny was a fundamental part of my childhood," Bloom said.

"Because it was the first time I saw an openly Jewish female protagonist on television. The story of Fran Fine, however, is a universal one that has touched the hearts of people of every race, religion and orientation. I am so proud to be using the characters established by The Nanny to tell a new story about one woman’s journey to becoming proud of who she is and what makes her different."

Hopefully if the show goes well, we'll see it on NZ shores someday!
