Fran Drescher

Fran Lovett

Fran Drescher currently stars as Los Angeles florist Fran in TV Land's new sitcom 'Happily Divorced.' Written by Fran Drescher ('The Nanny') and Peter Marc Jacobson ('The Nanny'), 'Happily Divorced' is inspired by Fran Drescher's real life experience and follows Los Angeles florist Fran, whose 18-year marriage ends suddenly when her husband announces he's gay. And if that weren’t enough, he can’t afford to move out. They figured out how to be 'Happily Divorced,' but her being single and his being gay, while living under one roof, is a whole other story.

Fran Drescher has been described as a 'Russell' – she has the comic timing of Rosalind Russell, the curves of Jane Russell, and the tenacity of a Jack Russell!

Fran received two Emmy® Awards and two Golden Globe® nominations for her portrayal as the lovable Miss Fine on the hit CBS series 'The Nanny,' a show she also created, wrote, directed and executive produced.

An accomplished film actress, Drescher won Esquire magazine’s Five Minute Oscar for her memorable performance in the mockumentary 'This Is Spinal Tap.' She has co-starred in countless films throughout her career with the likes of Robin Williams, Dan Aykroyd, Tim Robbins and Billy Crystal, and worked with such esteemed directors as Rob Reiner, Milos Forman and Francis Ford Coppola. But she is most proud of her starring turn opposite Timothy Dalton in 'Beautician and The Beast,' a film she also executive produced. On stage, Fran Drescher has had the privilege of performing in Ron Ribman's 'Rug Merchants of Chaos' at The Pasadena Playhouse in Los Angeles, 'The Exonerated' in New York City, Neil La Bute’s 'Some Girls,' and the New York production of Nora Ephron's ‘Love, Loss, and What I Wore.' Fran also performed in a special production of 'Camelot' at the renowned Lincoln Center.

Drescher is also an accomplished author. Enter Whining, her first book, was on The New York Times Best Seller list. For her most recent book, Cancer Schmancer, (also a New York Times Best Seller), Fran received the prestigious NCCS Writer's Award. On June 21, 2011, Fran celebrated 11 years of wellness as a uterine cancer survivor.

She is the recipient of the John Wayne Institute Woman of Achievement Award, the Gilda Award, the City of Hope Woman of the Year Award, the Hebrew University Humanitarian Award, and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s Spirit of Achievement Award, among many others.

A leading health advocate, Fran is the President and visionary of the Cancer Schmancer Movement. She was instrumental in getting the United States' first Gynecologic Cancer Education and Awareness Act passed into law and is now working with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention to use the appropriated funds to best reach all women. Fran has also been appointed to the distinguished position of Special Envoy for Women's Health Issues by the US State Department. She will be using her international celebrity to speak to women globally in emerging third world countries in the Middle East and Eastern Europe. She has now introduced an initiative in the state of California to mandate women’s cancer screening tests at their basic exams.

Character Bio

Fran Lovett married her college sweetheart Peter and thought they’d live happily ever after until, after 18 years of marriage, he came out of the closet. Finding herself suddenly single and in her mid-40’s was hard enough, but because they are upside-down on their mortgage, Peter and Fran are stuck living together. Fran may come across as critical and meddling, but she loves her family, her flower shop and, no matter how many other men she dates, her one true soulmate Peter.
