Ricardo Hurtado Talks New Series ‘Country Comfort,’ Shares 10 Fun Facts (Exclusive)

Ricardo Hurtado‘s new Netflix series Country Comfort is out now!

The 21-year-old actor stars as Tuck, the eldest in the family that Katharine McPhee‘s Bailey comes to be the nanny for.

Here’s a synopsis: 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 (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. Watch the trailer here!

Country Comfort was such an amazing project to be a part of. What I love most about it is how it combines both music and acting,” Ricardo told JJJ. “It really brings back memories to my first show, Nickelodeon’s School of Rock. This time, however, instead of being the drummer I get to play the guitar and sing! Everyone on set is so talented, professional, and kind. I am so grateful to work with such amazing people. I had an absolute blast and hope to do more!”

Ricardo is of course no stranger to Netflix as he starred in Malibu Rescue. He also starred in the School of Rock series, as well as appearing on The Goldbergs, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, Speechless, and Bunk’d, plus voice roles on Glitch Techs and Middle School Moguls.
