Fran Drescher last spoke in 2018 about wanting Cardi B to star in a reboot of The Nanny. Now, almost a year later, it seems that those talks have advanced!
Drescher, who stars in the new NBC comedy, Indebted, spoke to ET recently and says she's had talks with the rapper's team about moving forward.
"That [the meeting] was just kind of laying out groundwork. I do think she's great, and she would be kinda like my top choice, if she's disciplined to do this show every week. It can be a grind, but she's got a baby now and it could be a very comfortable, lovely way to, you know, work, be seen worldwide, and still do mini-concert tours when you're on hiatus," she said.
She continued, "We would have to write it for somebody else, which I would be excited to do actually. I could play Sylvia, the mom. And John Leguizamo could play [Fran’s dad], Morty. So, you know, we'll see. There's a lot of opportunities to do something fantastic with it and bring it right into the 21st century."
The original series ran on CBS from 1993-1999.
