Fran Drescher appeared on "The View" this morning to discuss the development of the upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of her beloved sitcom "The Nanny!"

As BroadwayWorld previously announced, the musical will feature a book co-written by Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominee Drescher and Jacobson, with lyrics by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Rachel Bloom and music by Bloom and three-time Emmy winner and the late Tony Award nominee Adam Schlesinger. Bloom and Schlesinger won a 2019 Emmy Award together for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics ("Crazy Ex-Girlfriend").
