FRAN DRESCHER returns to clean house in this hilarious second season of THE NANNY, available for the first time on DVD. One of television’s most popular sitcoms, THE NANNY took home an Emmy®-Award in its second season for Best Costuming, making it the most fashionable show on television. In season two, FRAN DRESCHER, CHARLES SHAUGHNESSY, DANIEL DAVIS, LAUREN LANE, NICHOLLE TOM, BENJAMIN, SALISBURY, MADELINE ZIMA and RENEE TAYLOR are up to their same old tricks. Fran dresses like a man to infiltrate an exclusive all-male club; Mr. Sheffield dates a dead-ringer for Fran; Niles auditions for Maxwell’s latest play; and Brighton’s knack for cards lands him on Sylvia’s canasta team. And that’s only the beginning! This 3 disc set includes all 26 original episodes from season two that will have you saying T.G.I.F. - Thank Goodness It’s Fran!
In the second season of her renowned show (1993-1999), Fran Drescher sizzles as Nanny Fine, continuing her inimitable style of witty one-liners, physical comedy, and fashion flair, which unequivocally establishes The Nanny
as one of the freshest and funniest sitcoms of the '90s. From the uproarious season opener, "Fran Lite"--where Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy) dates a carbon copy of Fran--the 26 episodes in this three-disc set are breezy and brilliant. As the season unfolds, Fran is mistaken for a nurse, arrested for kidnapping a baby, and cast in a Broadway production. Sparks of affection continue to fly between Miss Fine and Mr. Sheffield (dont miss "A Kiss is Just a Kiss"), while the razor-sharp repartee of C.C. Babcock (Lauren Lane) and Niles (Daniel Davis) further fuels the hilarity. Guest stars include Efrem Zimbalist Jr., Sally Jesse Raphael, Erik Estrada, Shari Lewis and Lambchop, and Billy Ray Cyrus. Season One's supporting cast returns en masse, with more stage time given to Renée Taylor (as Sylvia Fine) and Ann Morgan Guilbert (as Yetta). Yet it is Drescher who is larger-than-life, stealing every show in a manner reminiscent of Lucille Ball, while peppering the plot with liberal doses of ribald, often risqué humor. Bonus material omitted. (Ages 12 and older) --Lynn Gibson
