Drescher’s latest comedy, “Indebted” was one of four sitcoms picked up by NBC and will air as part of the network’s midseason line-up. Co-starring “Wings” alum Steven Weber, “The Mindy Project” star Adam Pally, and “Saturday Night Live” alum Abby Elliot, the show follows what NBC referred to as “boomerang parents” who hit financial rock-bottom and move-in unannounced with their son and daughter-in-law.

The “Indebted” cast walked the red carpet at NBC’s Upfronts event, with Drescher taking centre stage.

The 61-year-old showed off her curves in a figure-hugging blush pink dress, with her signature brown locks in shoulder-length curls.

Later in the evening, to celebrate the news about her latest project, Drescher made her way around the party circuit with producing partner and former husband, Peter Marc Jacobson.

The high school sweethearts, who were married in 1978, co-created and produced “The Nanny” which aired on CBS from 1993 to 1999. The pair separated in 1996 and divorced three years later at which time Jacobson revealed he was gay. After some time apart, the two reconnected when Drescher was diagnosed with uterine cancer in 2000.

“It doesn’t hurt to have had cancer because one of the silver linings is that we began our friendship again,” Drescher explained to Parade magazine. “I think we got very sound advice from our manager [Elaine Rich] who said that we really owed it to ourselves after all the years that we spent together to figure out how to reinvent the relationship and move the love we have into a more appropriate place that works for us at this time in our lives. And we did just that.”

In 2011, the duo teamed up yet again to produce another TV comedy based on their relationship called, “Happily Divorced.” Drescher played a woman navigating the single world after learning her husband’s true orientation.

During her time away from television, Drescher runs her charity Cancer Schmancer, and serves as a health advocate raising awareness for the benefits of cancer prevention and early detection.

“It’s deepened me as a human being. It’s forced me to have a life that resonates more with other people’s needs, with compassion, and a sensitivity to other people’s pain,” Drescher told People magazine in 2018. “I feel like I got famous, I got cancer, and I lived to tell about it. So that’s kind of become my life mission… All the work I do as an actor is to stay current so I can speak to the platforms I’m passionate about.”
