We had heard that Katharine McPhee was set to star in a ‘Nanny’-like sitcom for Netflix, and today it was made official!
Netflix just announced that the company has ordered 10 episodes of Country Comfort, a new original multi-cam comedy series created by Caryn Lucas (The Nanny, Miss Congeniality).
The series stars Katharine McPhee (Waitress on Broadway, The House Bunny) as Bailey and Eddie Cibrian (Take Two, RoseWood) as Beau, as well as Ricardo Hurtado (Malibu Rescue), Jamie Martin Mann, Pyper Braun, Shiloh Verrico (Here Today, Crown Vic) and Griffin McIntyre.
Here’s a brief synopsis from Netflix:
When her career and personal life get derailed, an aspiring young country singer named Bailey (played by Katharine McPhee) takes a job as a nanny for a rugged cowboy named Beau (played by Eddie Cibrian) and his five children. With a never-give up attitude and loads of Southern charm, this newbie-nanny is able to navigate the family dynamics and be the mother figure they’ve been missing. To her surprise, Bailey also gets the band she’s been missing in this musically talented family who help get her back on the road to stardom.
A couple of weeks ago, Katharine gave fans a sneak peek at her wardrobe fitting on Instagram:
Katharine has previously stated that she begins filming the show in February. Stay tuned to KatharineMcPhee.net for more Country Comfort news.
