Netflix Orders Melissa Joan Hart-Sean Astin Sitcom 'No Good Nick'
Netflix has added another family sitcom to its ever-growing roster of original productions.
The streaming service has picked up No Good Nick, which will star Melissa Joan Hart and Sean Astin as parents who unwittingly welcome a teenage con artist into their home.
The Netflix production will also star Siena Agudong (Star Falls) as the title character and Kalama Epstein (The Fosters) and Lauren Lindsey Donzis (Liv and Maddie).
"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," Netflix vp kids and family Melissa Cobb said Friday in a statement. "We hope to entertain kids and families with heart, mystery and a lot of fun when No Good Nick comes to Netflix."
Hart will play Liz, a type-A career mom who is married to Astin's Ed, a lovable, dorky "fun dad." They welcome Nick into their home before realizing she's a con artist who has a secret agenda. Epstein and Donzis will play Liz and Ed's daughters. Astin is returning to Netflix after recurring on Stranger Things' second season in 2017.
Netflix says the series will also have elements of serialized drama as it reveals whether there is more to Nick than meets the eye.
Production has already started on No Good Nick, which was created by David H. Steinberg and Keetgi Kogan. Andy Fickman (Kevin Can Wait, Liv and Maddie) is directing.
