While in Europe, Drescher visited legendary model and "Princesses" co-star, Twiggy Lawson.
Interacting with Lawson's children sparked an idea for a new TV show: Drescher would star as Fran Fine, the big-hearted, big-mouthed, big-haired nanny to three upper-class children of a widowed aristocrat (played by British actor Charles Shaughnessy). A., Drescher and Jacobson refined the concept and pitched the show to CBS.
The role was tailor-made for Drescher, and "The Nanny" officially hit the airwaves in 1993.
The sitcom drew from much of Drescher's personal life.
