Netflix Gets Katharine McPhee Multi-Cam Sitcom; Two Daytime Soaps Renewed

Country Comfort - Katharine McPhee and Eddie Cibrian

Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of Country Comfort, a new original multi-cam comedy series created by Caryn Lucas (The Nanny, Miss Congeniality). 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.

The series stars Katharine McPhee (Waitress on Broadway, Smash, Scorpion) 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.


Days of Our Lives

Days of our Lives, the longest running series on NBC, has been renewed for a record 56th season. "Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives." Those words, which have drawn millions of eager viewers to their television sets for six decades, will remain a high point of the broadcast day with this renewal announcement of the multi-Daytime Emmy Award-winning series. Days of our Lives, which aired its 13,755th episode in 2019, remains a television institution. The show first premiered as a half-hour drama in 1965 and expanded to an hour 10 years later. Set in the fictitious Midwestern town of Salem, Days of our Lives airs nationally on NBC in the United States and in more than 25 countries internationally. The core families are the Bradys, Hortons and DiMeras, and the multi-layered storylines involve elements of romance, adventure, mystery, comedy and drama.

The Young and the Restless

Meanwhile, The Young and the Restless, the most-watched and highest-rated daytime drama for the last 31+ years, has been renewed for four more years, through the 2023-2024 broadcast season, it was announced by CBS and Sony Pictures Television. The Young and the Restless has been a mainstay of CBS Daytime for over 47 years. In the last year, there have been many notable anniversaries on The Young and the Restless. Among them, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) celebrated 40 years on the show; Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott) celebrated 30 years; Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) and Sharon Case (Sharon Newman) celebrated 25 years; and Bryton James (Devon Hamilton) celebrated 15 years. Next month, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) will also celebrate his 40th anniversary.
