Sean Astin and Melissa Joan Hart are joining forces for a TGIF-like Netflix sitcom that's more than meets the eye. The duo is set to star in No Good Nick, about a husband and wife who foster a spunky 13-year-old before realizing that the new addition to their family is also a street-smart con artist.

Hart, will play Liz, a hyper-competitive mom, and Astin will take on the role of the dorky dad. The role should be pretty familiar for Aston -- he recently appeared in Season 2 of Stranger Things as the adorkably earnest Bob Newby who unfortunately met a tragic end. Meanwhile, Star Falls' Siena Agudong will take on the titular role of Nicky, who's more than meets the eye. The series will be directed by She's The Man's Andy Fickman and has already received a 20-episode order.

Hart is no stranger to sitcoms. She previously starred in the Nickelodeon classic Clarissa Explains It All before landing her breakout role as the titular character in Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. She went on to star opposite Joey Lawrence in Melissa & Joey which ran for four seasons on ABC Family (now Freeform). Meanwhile, Astin is a staple of the '80s and '90s after lead roles in iconic projects like The Goonies, Rudy and the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
