When Fran Fine entered the Sheffield’s residence in Park Avenue selling cosmetics, little did she know about how much she was going to change their lives. The Jewish girl from Queens got a job as the nanny for Maxwell Sheffield’s (a Broadway producer) three kids: Maggie, Brighton and Gracie. But the Sheffields got more than just a nanny: they got Sylvia, Fran’s compulsive eater, nosy mother; Val, Fran’s best friend with a low I.Q.; and Yetta, Fran’s grandmother. She gave joy to the house that had been blue ever since Mrs. Sheffield passed away, and quickly became friends with Niles, the butler, who is always aware of everything that is going on in the house.
The attraction between Fran and Mr. Sheffield became evident as the years went by, torturing C.C. (Maxwell’s business partner, who always had a crush on him).
