For several years there has been that rumor of seeing this story again as a series, but since 2018 it has gained more strength and there has been talk that the singer Cardi B would be in charge of the leading role and give life to Fran Fine (The Nanny). Now the actress Fran Drescher confirmed that he is working on a new version of this audiovisual production. According to the artist, this project would be located in our current times and apparently, the character that she would play would be Silvia, Fran Fine’s mother.

Personality, physique and charisma would be those aspects that Cardi B could bring to that character who was characterized by being funny, spontaneous and very daring. Although this production still does not have a release date, it could be transmitted via streaming by HBO Max.

Actress Frank Drescher was commissioned to play Nanny Fine from November 3, 1993 to June 23, 1999, completing six consecutive seasons as the lead. Fran Fine is a makeup artist looking for work and ends up becoming the babysitter of three children who are part of the high society in New York. And with the passage of time, she becomes their ally and friend, living many adventures with them.

But this story not only focuses on Nana Fine as we know her, there is also the character of Maxwell Sheffield. He is a millionaire theater producer who loses his wife many years before Nanny Fine comes into his life. And since she has a very successful Broadway career, she decides to hire a babysitter as her job consumes her and she doesn’t spend much time with her children. With the passage of time he begins to feel attraction for the babysitter, although he tries to maintain his relationship clearly at work.

Under the responsibility of Nanny Fine was Maggie sheffield, eldest daughter of Maxwell and who thanks to this babysitter becomes a popular young woman at her school, Brighton Sheffield, the middle child and the only male, and Grace, the smallest in the house and who has a habit of saying complicated words.

In addition to those already mentioned, two recurring characters are: Chastity Claire Babcock, the antagonist of this story and companion of Maxwell Sheffield. She has been working with him for 20 years and has failed to win him over. Since she first sees Nanny Fine, she feels jealous and always sees her as a threat. And how to forget Niles the butler, who has always been there for the family and has worked with Maxwell for a long time.
