Living with Fran -- Show Description

[via press release from The WB]

LIVING WITH FRAN -- SHOW DESCRIPTION

With two Emmy nominations, two Golden Globe nominations and an American Comedy Award nomination to her credit, Fran Drescher is a comedy superstar in every sense of the word. Beloved by television audiences for her starring role in the long-running comedy hit, "The Nanny," Drescher is also an accomplished film and stage actress and a best-selling author who shares the compelling personal story of her triumph over cancer in her book, "Cancer, Schmancer." Now, Drescher comes to The WB in a brand new series, "Living With Fran." With a starting point similar to the network's hit comedy, "Reba," "Living With Fran" revolves around a woman who has come to a crossroads and is starting to enjoy the new direction her life has taken. The incomparable Ms. Drescher stars as Fran Reeves, a divorc´┐Że who has found Riley (Ryan McPartlin, "Passions"), her wonderful, gorgeous - and yes, young - mid-twenties boyfriend. Their relationship is complicated by the fact that they are sharing a home with Fran's 21-year-old son, Josh (newcomer Ben Feldman), and 15-year-old daughter, Allison (Misti Traya, "Huff"), but Fran isn't complaining. Her new household may be non-traditional, but as she watches her old life intersect with her new one, Fran is sure this is right where she's supposed to be.

Fran was surprised when Josh cracked under the pressure of medical school and dropped out, but she welcomed him back into her new life. From Josh's point of view, the sweet but self-doubting mom he used to know has blossomed into a self-confident, free-spirited, emancipated woman with a growing career as an interior designer and, even more shocking, a handsome young boyfriend. The return of her "Boomerang Generation" son is challenging for Fran, but it makes her realize how much her life has changed - for the better.

Because this unusual family is still trying to figure each other out, they are destined to face some highly uncomfortable events, such as an unexpected visit from Riley's parents (guest stars Marilu Henner, "Taxi," and John Schneider, "Smallville") and the return of Fran's ex-husband (guest star Charles Shaughnessy, Ms. Drescher's former co-star on "The Nanny"). Fran will also meet several of Riley's friends and face their reactions to the relationship. Everywhere they turn, Fran and Riley will have to deal with other people's attitudes and assumptions about their new domestic situation, and it will take all the humor, patience and affection they can manage to make this family work.

"Living With Fran" is from Regency Television with executive producers Bob Myer, Jamie Kennedy and Fran Drescher and co-executive producers David Garrett & Jason Ward, Tim Kelleher and Frank Lombardi.
