Mom of two, Melissa Joan Hart, will once again be joining the ranks of working mothers everywhere. She got herself a job! ABC Family has signed Melissa to co-star with fellow parent Joey Lawrence (who has one kid and one on the way) in a new show aptly entitles “Melissa and Joey.”
“We love Melissa and Joey,” Paul Lee, President of ABC Family said in a statement. “Melissa has a long history on the network, and she and Joey recently starred in the network’s original movie, My Fake Fiance,” which broke records for the network last year. They have fantastic chemistry and are just so relatable to our viewers. We knew we wanted to get them together again, and developed this comedy specifically with them in mind.”
Access Hollywood reports that “The comedy finds Melissa playing a woman who has to take over care of her niece and nephew after her sister goes to prison and her brother-in-law leaves town. Joey plays the part of the family “manny” (a male nanny).”
