Coming from Kaplan's personal experiences (she's the mother of twin girls), Nanny centers on a new mom who finds the perfect nanny, but then has to replace her. Kaplan says: "I can only write what I know, and I think that the bizarre relationship that we develop with nannies is something that is relatable to a lot of mothers." Well, a lot of lucky mothers who are wealthy enough for a nanny, that is. Or, maybe it will also tap into the experiences of moms who find the perfect babysitter.
This isn't the first time the writer has used her personal experiences -- she wrote The Pre-Nup, a short flick about a woman whose wedding is challenged by a 102-page pre-nup, which came from her own marriage to manager Eric Gold, who executive produced it with her. While Kaplan hopes to star in a feature film based on her short, she has no plans to act in Replacing the Nanny. Instead, she's writing it for a specific actress she wouldn't name. Who could it be?
