Biography

Born in Flushing, Queens, New York, Peter Marc Jacobson broke into show business alongside wife Fran Drescher, appearing in a string of such 1980s and '90s movies as "Gorp and "We're Talkin' Serious Money. " In 1993, he effectively retired from acting to take matters into his and Drescher's own hands, co-creating a vehicle for his longtime spouse. The result was the smash hit "The Nanny," a proper-meets-pert sitcom about a Queens hairdresser who becomes the impromptu caretaker of a Broadway producer's children. After overseeing the similarly charactered Drescher-starring film "The Beautician and the Beast" and divorcing from Drescher in 1999 (with whom he remained good friends), Jacobson returned to television to write, produce, and/or direct episodes of the sisterly sitcoms "Hope & Faith" and "What I Like About You." In 2009, he innovated the concept of the TV pilot with his creation of "Tease," a strip-club-set dramedy that was presented as web series for the express purpose of being picked up by network television.
