About Melissa & Joey

When her sister ends up in prison and her brother-in-law disappears, local politician Mel Burke steps in to take responsibility for her teenage niece Lennox and adolescent nephew Ryder. Realizing quickly she’s in over her head, Mel welcomes help in the unlikely form of Joe Longo — formerly a commodities trader — who moves in and becomes the family’s “manny” … that is until Joe goes from being Mel’s employee to becoming her husband when they marry.
