FRAN DRESCHER IS IN CHARGE WHEN "THE NANNY" JOINS TV LAND BEGINNING AUGUST 2

Network Celebrates Launch With Week-Long Nightly Marathons Of Hilarious Star-Studded Episodes From Series

New York, NY, July 29, 2010 - Worlds and cultures collide between a sassy Queens nanny and an upper class Manhattan family when "The Nanny" joins TV Land beginning Monday, August 2 at 6PM ET/PT. The network celebrates the arrival of the outspoken Fran Fine each weeknight from Monday, August 2nd through Friday, August 6th with star-studded mini-marathons featuring guest stars such as Roseanne Barr, Ray Romano, Jay Leno, Harry Hamlin, Joan Collins, Billy Ray Cyrus, Elizabeth Taylor and more. Plus, viewers will get the inside scoop on how Fran went from nanny to wife as TV Land features the highs and lows of Fran's romance with Broadway producer and boss, Maxwell Sheffield with romantic episodes on Saturday, August 7th from 12PM - 9PM and Sunday, August 8th from 12PM - 10PM ET/PT. Beginning August 9th, "The Nanny" can be seen weeknights at 8:00PM ET/PT on TV Land.

"'The Nanny' is the perfect companion to our other modern classics 'Everybody Loves Raymond' and 'Roseanne'," states TV Land senior vice president of programming and acquisitions Jaclyn Cohen. "Millions of viewers tuned in every week to this timeless and entertaining series because they couldn't resist Fran Drescher's endearing character, the talented cast and the show's quick-witted writing."

Drescher starred in this beloved '90s sitcom as Fran Fine, a bubbly and nasal-voiced Queens native who was fired from her job and abandoned by her boyfriend. Eventually selling cosmetics door to door, she meets a rich, widowed English Broadway producer named Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy) and is taken for an applicant for the job of nanny to Maxwell's three children Maggie (Nicholle Tom), Brighton (Benjamin Salisbury), and Grace (Madeline Zima). Her nurturing style includes out-of-the-ordinary techniques coupled with a tell-it-like-it-is attitude which made the children, the butler, Niles (Daniel Davis) - and eventually her boss - fall in love with her. Also complementing the exceptional cast was Fran's food-loving mother, Sylvia (Ren�e Taylor) and Maxwell's partner and Niles' arch-enemy, C.C. Babcock (Lauren Lane). Drescher was nominated twice for an Emmy� and the show received countless awards including a TV Land Award in 2008 for Favorite Nanny. "The Nanny" ran on CBS from 1993-1999.
