CMT reviving Fox's canceled 'Nanny 911' reality parenting series

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 Variety reported 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.

After losing out to ABC in the bidding for the American rights to Britain's Supernanny series in 2004, Fox reality programming chief Mike Darnell reacted by immediately ordering Nanny 911

At the time, Nanny 911 was one of a string of reality concepts that were cloned by Fox, including the network's Trading Spouses clone of ABC's Wife Swap; its The Next Great Champ copycat of NBC's The Contender; and its The Rebel Billionaire knock-off of NBC's The Apprentice.

Nanny 911 premiered 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.
