You'll Never Nanny in This Town Again

Several years ago, I was the judge for a book contest that recognized the efforts of small and self-publishers. There were two large boxes of books that had to be read and they covered a whole spectrum of quality.

One of the books that I particularly enjoyed and ended up recommending to several other people was a book called You'll Never Nanny in This Town Again by Suzanne Hansen. She was a nanny who had a negative nannying experience with a big-time Hollywood producer, followed by some pleasant ones with such actors as the DeVitos.

I didn't really see much of the book again until today. Turns out it was picked up by Crown Publisher in December 2005. Today, The Book Standard announced that Fox Network bought the rights for it and plan to turn it into a sitcom with Marty Adelstein as the producer.

Hansen won't be getting rich on the deal, though it certainly is a nice bonus. Reports are that she was paid somewhere between $50,000 and $90,000, according to Publisher's Marketplace.
