In this hilarious new original series, Mel (Melissa Joan Hart) is a former wild child turned local politician. When her sister ends up in prison and her brother-in-law goes on the lam, she takes in her teenaged niece and nephew. Spread too thin to manage by herself, help comes in the unlikely form of Joe (Joey Lawrence), a former commodities trader who is out of work. Desperate for a job, he moves in and becomes the family's manny.
Joe gets a new job that quickly lands him in the middle of a political scandal that could also jeopardize Mel's career. Lennox is acting in a play that includes a kiss from a fellow classmate; not her boyfriend.
