Art imitating life: Fran Drescher stars in new comedy, 'Happily Divorced'

Fran Drescher, best known for her starring role in CBS's hit "The Nanny", is returning to television in a role she is all too familiar with.

In the new comedy "Happily Divorced" Drescher plays a wife who finds out her husband is gay. The show's premise closely imitates Drescher's real-life marriage to her "Nanny" producer and co-creator Peter Marc Jacobson who came out to Drescher after their marriage dissolved. Drescher and Jacobson remain close and are now Co-Executive Producers of the new show, which airs Wednesdays at 10:30PM Eastern on TV Land.

Drescher talks to American Morning about "Happily Divorced" and her relationship with her ex-husband.
