Drescher will pen the book with Peter Marc Jacobson; the two co-created the series while married.
Beautiful–The Carole King Musical director Marc Bruni is attached to helm the musical with the father-son producing duo of Scott and Brian Zeilinger serving as producers. A production timeline, additional creative team members, and casting information will be announced at a later date.

Cool that The Nanny is getting the musical treatment, but if they’re gonna start giving TV shows musicals, then were gonna need a Golden Girls musical, like, yesterday. pic.twitter.com/Fs7A9Xfpvs
