The Nanny was an American sitcom that was first aired in 1993 on CBS. It starred Fran Drescher as the nanny named Fran (as Ann Hampton Callaway sings in the theme she also wrote). So far six seasons have been aired.

In the series Fran Fine is the nanny hired by single dad and Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy) to help him raise his kids Maggie (Nicholle Tom), Brighton (Benjamin Salisbury) and Gracie (Madeline Zima). Rounding up the ensemble are butler Niles (Daniel Davis), Maxwell's assistant C.C. Babcock (Lauren Lane), as well as Fran's mother Sylvia (Renée Taylor), grandmother Yetta (Ann Morgan Guilbert) and best friend Valerie "Val" Toriello (Rachel Chagall). Sheffield is a widower whose wife died many years ago. The main intrigue is that Fran Fine tries to get Mr. Sheffield to marry her, while Niles and Ms. Babcock exchange sarcastic comments.
