NEW YORK (AP) — Count Fran Drescher of “The Nanny” and Wayne Knight of “Seinfeld” among TV veterans returning in new sitcoms.
TV Land network is announcing that Drescher will be back on the air with “Happily Divorced.” She will star as a florist who deals with dating after finding out her husband is gay. The network said Monday that “Happily Divorced” will premiere June 15.
