Synopsis

Fran Fine, a Jewish woman from Flushing Queens, worked in a bridal shop when her boyfriend kicked her out.

She then became a door-to-door make-up saleslady where she ended up on the doorstep of the Sheffield household.

Maxwell Sheffield (a Broadway producer) took one look at the big haired, nasal voiced woman with her flamboyant flair for fashion and hired her on the spot to be a nanny to his three children, Maggie, Brighton and Gracie.

Nanny Fine brought laughter, warmth and a sense of homeliness to the otherwise somber house after the passing of Mrs Sheffield.

In Nanny Fine, the Sheffields did not only get a nanny, they also got Fran's mother Sylvia, who liked dropping by unannounced and enjoyed stuffing herself, her ditzy friend Val and also her beloved grandmother Yetta, who wanted nothing more than to see her granddaughter married and having babies.

With each passing day, the attraction between Fran and Mr Sheffield grew more and more strongly, much to the delight of nosy butler Niles. Off course Mr Sheffield's partner, CC Babcock was not too happy about the turn of events as she saw herself as the next Mrs Sheffield.

With lots of hilarious situations, funny tongue-in cheek moments, The Nanny proved its popularity which led to many Emmy Award nominations.
