The plot of the show revolves around nasal-voiced Fran Fine (Fran Drescher) from Flushing, Queens, who fresh out of her job as a bridal consultant in her boyfriend's shop, peddles cosmetics on the Upper East Side doorstep of a wealthy and widowed Englishman, Broadway producer Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy). When he mistakenly believes Fran has been sent by a nanny agency, she quickly seizes the opportunity to become the nanny for his three children. Soon Fran, with her off-beat nurturing and no-nonsense honesty, wins over the kids as well as Maxwell. It is a situation of blue collar meets blue blood, as Fran gives the prim-and-proper Maxwell and his children a dose of "Queens logic," helping them to become a healthy, happy family.
