All hail Fran Drescher, who so potently understands how bored you are at home and, as such, has organized a small but noble distraction. According to Variety, the original cast of beloved sitcom The Nanny is reuniting for a virtual table read of the 1993 pilot via Zoom, which will be posted on Sony Pictures’ YouTube page Monday, April 6.

“Laughter is the best medicine! So, in these challenging times, Petah and I thought, Wouldn’t it be great if we pulled together the original cast of ‘The Nanny’ for a virtual read of the pilot?” Drescher said in a statement, referring in her classic Queens nasal to the show’s cocreator, Peter Marc Jacobson. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime Pandemic Performance for our fans around the world who are currently stressing in isolation and could use a real upper! It sure has given each of us a lift and we hope it does for you as well.”

The reunion includes Charles Shaughnessy (Mr. Sheffield), Daniel Davis (the butler Niles), Lauren Lane (CeCe), Nicholle Tom, Benjamin Salisbury, and Madeline Zima (Mr. Sheffield’s kids), among others.
