Fran Drescher Is ‘Happily Divorced’ To A Gay Guy

Fran Drescher (?The Nanny?) returns in ?Happily Divorced? a new sitcom about a woman who lives with her gay ex-husband.

The Hollywood Reporter has the story:

Fran Drescher returns to series television Wednesday on TV Land’s Happily Divorced. In the sitcom, the former Nanny star portrays a woman who lives with her gay ex-husband, played by John Michael Higgins.

The show is loosely based on Drescher’s relationship with her own ex-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson. Jacobson is Drescher’s co-writer and producing partner on the project and also executive produced The Nanny. He did not come out as a gay man until after their divorce.

Drescher says of her new role, “To explore a new relationship and a new character, someone that obviously is older and has a different life experience, is very exciting to me.”
