Melissa Joan Hart & Sean Astin To Star In Sitcom ‘No Good Nick’ For Netflix
Melissa Joan Hart and Sean Astin are set to star in a new multi-camera comedy series for Netflix the streaming service has announced.
Titled ‘No Good Nick‘, the sitcom revolves around a family that welcomes a 13-year-old into their family before realizing she is a street-smart con artist with a secret agenda. Hart is set to play Liz, the competitive “career mother”, whilst Astin will star as the archetypical loveable, dorky “fun dad.” Siena Agudong (‘Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn’) stars as teen con artist Nick, with Kalama Epstein (‘The Fosters’) and Lauren Lindsey Donzis (‘Liv and Maddie’, ‘Ghosted’) rounding out the family.
“Melissa Joan Hart and Sean Astin are beloved by millions of fans around the world, and we are delighted to bring them together as parents for the very first time,” commented Melissa Cobb, vice president of kids and family at Netflix. “We hope to entertain kids and families with heart, mystery, and a lot of fun when No Good Nick comes to Netflix.”
Melissa Joan Hart was starring in the sitcom ‘Melissa & Joey’ up until 2015, but is, of course, best known for her role as ‘Sabrina The Teenage Witch’ in the 90’s tv show. It’s an interesting move to have Hart join the streaming service in a new show just as the ‘Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina’ remake launches on Netflix next month.
Sean Astin popped up most recently as the ever lovable Bob in the last season of Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’. He’s also been busy with voice work, lending his vocal chords to ‘The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants’, ‘Justice League Action’ and ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’. He previously starred in the first season of ‘The Strain’, and, most famously, played Sam in the ‘Lord Of The Rings’ trilogy.
‘No Good Nick‘ is exec produced and created by David H. Steinberg and Keetgi Kogan (‘Yo-kai Watch’), with Andy Fickman (‘Kevin Can Wait’) set to direct. Netflix hasn’t yet set a premiere date for the show, but we’d assume it will land in 2019. We’ll let you know when we hear more.
