    News & Cast Updates

    (News section last updated January 30, 2020)


    Katharine McPhee & Eddie Cibrian Star In ‘Country Comfort’ Nanny Comedy Series Ordered By Netflix

    (1/30/20) Netflix has given 10-episode series order to Country Comfort, a multi-camera comedy series starring actress-singer Katharine McPhee (Waitress on Broadway, The House Bunny) and Eddie Cibrian (Take Two, Rosewood). The series was created by former The Nanny executive producer Caryn Lucas.

    In Country Comfort, when her career and personal life get derailed, an aspiring young country singer named Bailey (McPhee) takes a job as a nanny for a rugged cowboy named Beau (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.

    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.

    American Idol alumna McPhee starred on the CBS drama series Scorpion, which aired for four seasons, and in the Broadway musical Waitress. She is repped by WME and MGMT Entertainment.

    Cibrian recently starred in the ABC series Take Two and was previously seen in Fox’s Rosewood. He is repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

    Lucas also co-wrote the hit movie Mss Congeniality staring Sandra Bullock.

    New Soap Digital Series Set To Debut

    (12/19/19) STUDIO CITY, a new digital series created by daytime vet Sean Kanan (ex-Deacon, B&B et al), makes its debut on December 20 on Amazon Prime. The series features other daytime notables including Carolyn Hennesy (Diane, GH), Sarah Brown (ex-Carly, GH et al), Patrika Darbo (ex-Nancy, DAYS et al), Tristan Rogers (Robert, GH) and Scott Turner Schofield (ex-Nick, B&B). “STUDIO CITY a love letter to soaps,” says Kanan in a statement. The actor stars as Sam Stevens, a soap opera actor trying to navigate his own tumultuous personal life. “Each episode gives fans a double dose of storyline by weaving in clips from the fictional soap-within-the-show … Soap operas have been an integral part of my life and I wanted to create a project that reflected my deep affection for the enormous talent behind their continued success and longevity,” Kanan states.

    Lisa de Cazotte Dies: Emmy-Winning Daytime Producer Was Age 58

    (12/9/19) Lisa de Cazotte, an Emmy Award-winning daytime television producer died Saturday, December 7, after a long illness, Deadline has learned. She was 58.

    Born Lisa Smith in Westchester, New York in 1961, she graduated from Fordham University and began her television career as an intern on ABC’s One Life to Live. She quickly moved up the ranks to associate, then coordinating producer.

    Later positions included working as a producer then supervising producer on NBC’s Santa Barbara and ABC’s All My Children before she was named supervising producer of Aaron Spelling’s Sunset Beach.

    In 1999, de Cazotte partnered with writer James E. Reilly and was named EP of NBC Studio’s Passions. She served as EP for the run of the show until 2008; then went on to executive produce General Hospital: Night Shift, a primetime spinoff of GH that ran on cable, before returning to All My Children. In 2012, de Cazotte was named co-executive producer of Days of Our Lives where she won two Daytime Emmy Awards for outstanding drama series. In 2017, she became supervising producer of The Young and the Restless, where she won her third Emmy. She was still producing the Sony/CBS show at the time of her death.

    In 2002, de Cazotte married French filmmaker and Oscar winner Antoine de Cazotte. They divided their time between Los Angeles, New York and Paris.

    Lisa de Cazotte is survived by her husband Antoine, her brothers Michael Patrick Smith, Robert Terence Smith, and Brian Charles Smith, as well as many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents.

    Good Trouble Reunites Entire Fosters Family for Christmas Special

    (9/19/19) (Photo) Christmas is a time for family, so Good Trouble is very fittingly bringing together Callie and Mariana’s entire Fosters clan (and then some!) for its upcoming holiday special, TVLine has learned exclusively.

    The two-hour event will feature the returns of Teri Polo and Sherri Saum (as moms Stef and Lena), plus David Lambert and Hayden Byerly (as siblings Brandon and Jude). And although Noah Centineo (Jesus) is not pictured in TVLine’s exclusive photo, rest assured that The Internet’s Boyfriend will be part of the festivities. While each family member already visited Callie and Mariana’s new digs during the spinoff’s first season, the special marks the first time all of the Adams Fosters will be reunited since the original series ended its run last year.

    On top of that, the Christmas gathering will also include a number of in-laws who made their debut on The Fosters: Brandon’s wife Eliza, her parents Jim (Robert Gant) and Diane (Susan Walters), and her brothers Jamie (Beau Mirchoff) and Carter (Spencer List). Of course, Jamie is no stranger to Good Trouble, where he recurs as Callie’s boyfriend. As for Carter, he previously clicked with Jude on The Fosters, so this reunion could be quite interesting.

    “Look who’s coming to town. It’s not Santa, but our beloved Adams Foster family will be bringing plenty of cheer,” co-creator Joanna Johnson tells TVLine. “Tune in to see who’s been naughty or nice and for all the drama and hijinks of a Foster family/Coterie holiday mashup!”

    The holiday special — written by Johnson and directed by co-creators Bradley Bredeweg (Hour 1) and Peter Paige (Hour 2) — is slated to air this winter. Viewers can catch up on all episodes of Good Trouble on Hulu.

    BH90210 First Look: It's Carol Potter (aka Mama Walsh) to the Rescue!

    (8/11/19) (Photo) The Walsh twins could always turn to their parents for help in the early days of the original Beverly Hills, 90210, so it only makes sense that life should imitate art, right? Carol Potter, who played family matriarch Cindy Walsh, shows up as “herself” in Episode 3 of Fox’s BH90210 (Aug. 21, 9/8c), and we’ve got a first look at her highly anticipated arrival.

    Per the episode’s official synopsis, “Tori starts to feel the pressure of balancing the cast’s requirements for the reboot, while keeping the wheels in motion. Jason and Ian both struggle with their marriage issues, Jennie meets her new bodyguard, Brian hires a new assistant and Gabby asks Christine for advice. Meanwhile, the cast turns to a familiar face for help and Tori goes to extremes to get Shannen on board with the reboot.”

    And Potter is just one of many fan favorites returning as part of Fox’s new limited series. Wednesday’s series premiere reunited us with the show’s main stars — Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering — while next week’s episode (Aug. 14) brings Christine Elise (aka Emily Valentine) into the mix.

    (7/31/19) (cbs.soapsindepth.com) Please join us in sending love and prayers to Adrienne Frantz (ex-Amber, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) and her entire family as her father, John Frantz, was rushed to the hospital on July 27.

Life is precious and fragile! Treat it as such! You never know…"

    Frantz's Y&R and B&B co-stars and friends like Kate Linder (Esther, Y&R), Tammin Sursok (ex-Colleen, Y&R), Ashley Jones (ex-Bridget, B&B), and Jacob Young (ex-Rick, B&B) joined the many fans in sending love and support in the comments on the Instagram photo of her father and her daughter, three-year-old Amélie.

    After arriving at the hospital, Frantz snapped a photo of her dad in his bed and offered an update for fans and friends. "No news yet!" she reported. "Please keep praying for my dad, John Frantz! I'm here, Daddy! Not a good look on you! Please get up so I can kick your butt for freaking me out!"

    Thankfully, a couple days later, on July 29, Frantz had some good news to share. "Looks like someone has an amazing guardian angel!" she exclaimed. "My dad is up! He is still in ICU but this is a start! I really thought this wouldn't happen! It has been a horrible few days! Thank you everyone for all of your wonderful prayers and support! Still have a long way to go but God blessed today! And thank you to all of the wonderful doctors and nurses who have been taking such great care of him! Lunch is on me tomorrow!"

    Although Frantz has not yet explained what happened to her father to land him in the ICU, it's clearly very serious and we're glad for the good news that his condition is improving. We'll hold the entire family in our thoughts during this time and hope for further positive updates, which we will naturally continue to pass along.
