Fran Drescher stars in The WB in the comedy Living With Fran. With a starting point similar to the network's hit comedy, Reba, Living With Fran revolves around a woman who has come to a crossroads and is starting to enjoy the new direction her life has taken. The incomparable Ms. Drescher stars as Fran Reeves, a divorcée who has found Riley, her wonderful, gorgeous - and yes, young - mid-twenties boyfriend.
Their relationship is complicated by the fact that they are sharing a home with Fran's 21-year-old son, Josh, and 15-year-old daughter, Allison, but Fran isn't complaining. Her new household may be non-traditional, but as she watches her old life intersect with her new one, Fran is sure this is right where she's supposed to be.
Fran was surprised when Josh cracked under the pressure of medical school and dropped out, but she welcomed him back into her new life. From Josh's point of view, the sweet but self-doubting mom he used to know has blossomed into a self-confident, free-spirited, emancipated woman with a growing career as an interior designer and, even more shocking, a handsome young boyfriend. The return of her "Boomerang Generation" son is challenging for Fran, but it makes her realize how much her life has changed - for the better.
Meryl and Danny announce their engagement and Fran is asked to be Meryl’s Matron of Honor, while Riley is asked to be Danny’s Best Man. Realizing that she will run into Riley at the wedding, Fran brings Ted as her date in order to convince Riley that she has moved on from him and is giving Ted another chance. Ted, however, hits on Riley’s date, giving Riley the chance to ask Fran the true reasons for their breakup. When he learns that Fran was just trying to protect him, Riley proposes.
