Netflix is bringing Melissa Joan Hart (Clarissa Explains It All, Sabrina the Teenage Witch) and Sean Astin (Stranger Things, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Goonies) together for a multicam dramedy series called “No Good Nick.” The new series is scheduled to launch on the video-streaming service in April and Netflix confirmed the cast earlier today.
Joining Joan Hart and Astin in the series are Siena Agudong (Star Falls, Alex & Me), Lauren Lindsey Donzis (Liv & Maddie) and Kalama Epstein (The Fosters).
The story follows 13-year-old Nick, short for Nicole, who infiltrates a family with the intention to get revenge on them for unknowingly ruining her life. As she gets to know the family, she finds compassion for them and struggles to go through with her plan.
David H. Steinberg and Keetgi Kogan executive produced and created the series, which was directed by Andy Fickman (She’s The Man, The Game Plan). The original series is produced by Netflix.
Netflix didn’t drop a trailer for the new series yet, but one will most likely be released over the next few days.
Astin followed up his role on “Stranger Things” as the lovable Bob Newby with several big projects on television. Astin voiced Raphael in the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” animated series, as well as Shazam and Billy Batson in the “Justice League Action” series. Outside of his role as Dr. Pemberton in “The Big Bang Theory,” Astin has been frequently lending his voice to projects. The actor also voiced Chester, Nutty Pete, and the Caged Bird in the “Bunnicula” TV series, and was the narrator in “The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants” animated series.
Melissa Joan Hart has been dominating the made-for-TV holiday market these past few years. She starred in “A Very Nutty Christmas” as Kate Holiday after starring in “A Very Merry Toy Store” as Connie Forrester. She also took the role of Emily Morgan in “Broadcasting Christmas.”
