Frannie's Turn is an American sitcom on CBS that premiered on September 13, 1992 and ended on October 10, 1992. The series was the first show Chuck Lorre ever created, after his time as a writer for Roseanne.[1]


Set on Staten Island, New York, Frannie Escobar (Miriam Margolyes) is a homemaker whose life is making her crazy. But with laughter, wisdom and plenty of heart, Frannie copes with the ups and downs of everyday life with her cantankerous Cuban husband Joseph (Tomas Milian), his eccentric mother, their dim-witted son, and their headstrong daughter. In a house where the sexes battle, the cultures clash and the generation gap is unbridged, life is lively, unpredictable and always entertaining.
