KBS undecided on "The Nanny" Korea version


Major Korean broadcaster KBS has yet to decide on creating the Korean version of hit U.S. sitcom "The Nanny," according to a producer at the network.

Several media outlets recently reported that KBS will collaborate with Sony Pictures TV in producing the sitcom tentatively titled "I Need a Beauty" set for premiere in November but KBS producer Ko Chan-soo played down the reports.

"I've talked to screenwriter Shin Jung-gu about creating the sitcom but nothing has been set internally regarding its production nor when it will be allotted a time slot," Ko explained.

Shin is the writer of several films and dramas, most notably MBC sitcom "Hello Francesca" from 2005.

"The Nanny," which aired from 1993 to 1999, was about a Jewish Queens native who becomes the nanny of three children from the New York/British upper class.

The show won a Rose d'Or and one Emmy Award and the show's main star Fran Drescher was twice nominated for a Golden Globe as well as for an Emmy.

The sitcom was aired in more than 80 countries worldwide and has been adapted in several countries overseas as well.

Aww, I love The Nanny!

If they DO make a korean version, I hope it will be a good one.
This could be kind of weird and somewhat wrong if it's done badly.

((: good luck to them!
