The Nanny

In 1993, Salisbury was cast in his most notable role, in “The Nanny”, playing one of the children under the care of the titular character. The show aired on CBS, and followed the life of a Jewish fashion queen who becomes the nanny of three children living in high society. The show proved successful, winning an Emmy Award and 12 nominations in total.

The show also earned a Rose d’Or, an award given at international festivals, focused on programming and broadcasting. The main star of the show Fran Drescher also gained several award nominations for her performance as the nanny. The fame of the show reached a point that international editions were created, loosely based on the original script.

While working on the show, he also had other opportunities, including an appearance in “D3: The Mighty Ducks” in 1996, playing a sports announcer.

The film was produced by Disney, and is the final installment of “The Mighty Ducks” trilogy, continuing the story of the team, and reached fourth spot at the box office, although faring less well compared to its previous iterations.
