Melissa & Joey, a half-hour comedy with Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence both executive producing and starring, finds Hart portraying Mel, the grown-up former wild child of a political family who is now a local politician herself. When her sister ends up in prison and her brother-in-law flees after a scandal hits, Mel must take responsibility for her teenaged niece, Lennox, and pre-adolescent nephew, Ryder. With Mel spread too thin to manage by herself, help comes to her in the unlikely form of Joe (Lawrence) who - desperate for a job - moves in and becomes the family's "manny."
