CMT reviving Fox's canceled 'Nanny 911' reality parenting series
By Christopher Rocchio, 01/26/2009
Nanny 911 has reportedly found a new home to help tame unruly children.
CMT has ordered eight episodes of the former Fox reality series, Daily Varietyreported Wednesday.
Casting is currently underway for the revival, which is still being produced by original producers Granada America and will also feature several nannies who starred in original Fox episodes, according to Variety.
Nanny 911premiered in November 2004 -- more than two months earlier than Supernanny -- and it initially delivered solid ratings for Fox, especially considering its highly competitive Wednesday 9PM time period.
Fox subsequently aired three seasons of Nanny 911 before Twentieth Television reached a multi-year licensing agreement last February with CMT, which has since aired Nanny 911 reruns.
