Country Comfort debuted in March and starred the American Idol season 5 alum as a struggling country singer who through a series of improbable mishaps, became the nanny of a musical family.
Netflix described the show: “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.”
Eddie Cibrian played the dad. The cast also included Ricardo Hurtado as Tuck, Jamie Martin Mann as Brody, Griffin McIntyre as Dylan, Shiloh Verrico as Cassidy, Pyper Braun as Chloe, Janet Varney as Summer and Eric Balfour as Boone.
The television series is Katharine’s third. She headlined the NBC musical dramedy Smash for two seasons from 2012-2013. She also starred in the CBS procedural Scorpion for four seasons from 2014-2018. Most recently, she played the lead in the musical Waitress in both London and New York.
During a Country Comfort filming hiatus, enforced by the COVID-19 pandemic, Katharine gave birth to a son, Rennie, with her husband David Foster. That’s why later in the season she had to hide her noticeable baby bump!
Netflix has also cancelled The Crew, Bonding and Mr. Iglesias.
