Season 1

Melissa & Joey is an American television sitcom created by David Kendall and Bob Young which follows local politician Mel Burke after a family scandal leaves her alone with her niece and nephew, forcing her to hire a man named Joe to become the family's male nanny, or "manny".

Melissa Joan Hart portrays 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 brother-in-law flees after a scandal hits, Mel must take responsibility for her teenaged niece, Lennox (Taylor Spreitler) and adolescent nephew, Ryder (Nick Robinson).

Spread too thin to manage by herself, help comes in the unlikely form of Joe (Joey Lawrence) who, desperate for a job, moves in and becomes the family's "manny."

Both Mel and Joe experience issues in their love lives. While Joe is reluctant to move on after the break-up of his marriage, Mel attempts to start a new relationship, but finds it tough being a single woman with Joe living in her house.

Meanwhile, Mel must jump into "mom" mode when Lennox has a difficult time adjusting to the new public school. Alexandra Hart Gilliams (Melissa's real-life younger sister) guest stars as one of Lennox's friends.

Melissa & Joey is a half-hour multi-cam comedy executive-produced by Bob Young & David Kendall, Paula Hart, Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence. Melissa & Joey is also written and created by Bob Young & David Kendall.

The pilot was directed by Ted Wass. Melissa Joan Hart, Joey Lawrence, Taylor Spreitler and newcomer Nick Robinson star. Elizabeth Ho is a recurring guest star.
