Fancy Nancy is an animated family comedy centered on 6-year-old Nancy, who likes to be fancy in everything from her advanced vocabulary to her creative, elaborate attire.

Geared towards kids age 2-7, each episode contains humorous and heartfelt stories which highlight themes of self-expression, originality and love of family.
No premiere date is set for the new series.
