When her career and personal life get derailed, an aspiring young country singer named Bailey (Katharine McPhee) takes a job as a nanny for a rugged cowboy named Beau (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.
Ricardo Hurtado (Malibu Rescue), Jamie Martin Mann, Pyper Braun, Shiloh Verrico (Here Today, Crown Vic) and Griffin McIntyre play the children.
Despite plot similarities to The Nanny and Lucas’ background as one of the of the key writer-producers on the CBS sitcom starring Fran Drescher for most of its run, Country Comfort is not a reboot of that show or associated to it in anyway. The general premise of a single father and a nanny helping him raise his kids has been around for a long time, employed on screen numerous times, from The Sound of Music to Mary Poppins Returns.
Lucas serves as executive producer and showrunner. Kelly Park (Family Reunion, Alexa & Katie) is directing.
