Melissa Joan Hart will star in No Good Nick, a new sitcom for Netflix.
As Netflix prepares to unveil to the world its rebooted Sabrina the Teenage Witch series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the streaming giant is also bringing back the Sabrina of many subscribers’ childhoods, as the ubiquitous 90s star of Clarissa Explains It All returns to our screens
The show stars Hart as Liz, a career mum and wife to Ed, a husband and dorky father figure played by Sean Astin. But the parents’ happy home is undermined when they unwittingly welcome Nick, a teenage con artist, into their lives.
Siena Agudong (Star Falls) will play the eponymous trickster, with Kalama Epstein (The Fosters) and Lauren Lindsey Donzis (Liv and Maddie) also joining the cast as Liz and Ed’s daughters.
“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 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.”
The project marks a reunion between Netflix and Astin, after the Lords of the Rings star appeared in Season 2 of Stranger Things. It also marks Netflix’s ongoing commitment to family-friendly original series, although Netflix has described the sitcom as containing elements of serial drama, as there’s more to Nick than meets to eye.
The show is created by David H. Steinberg and Keetgi Kogan, with Andy Fickman (Kevin Can Wait, Liv and Maddie) directing. Production is already underway on the series.
