Lifetime picks up ‘The Nanny’

Skein gets $300,000 per episode

“The Nanny” is getting a Lifetime.

Lifetime Television has picked up an exclusive, four-year cable window for reruns of comedy series “The Nanny,” starting November 2002.

Sources indicate that the pact for the first-ever cable window for the show involves a $300,000-per-episode license fee. The show is expected to air in primetime on the cable network.

Columbia TriStar Television produced the Fran Drescher vehicle, which debuted on CBS in 1993 and aired on the network for six seasons. Columbia TriStar Television Distribution distributes “The Nanny” off-network.

The show is expected to continue its off-net broadcast syndication run, which began in the fall of 1998.

“Comedies have proven to be incredibly popular among our viewers,” says Dawn Tarnofsky-Ostroff, exec VP of entertainment for Lifetime Entertainment Services. “The series is a proven ratings winner and will be a terrific complement to our growing slate of primetime original series and movies.”
