    In the ’90s, Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence created furors among adolescents. She drew smiles in Clarissa Explains It All and impersonated Sabrina, the Teenage Witch while he portrayed Joseph “Joey” Russo, a not-so-smart baseball player and ladies man, in Blossom. Almost a decade and a half later, they returned to the small screen to make us cry with laughter. In ABC Family’ sitcom, the goldilocks acts Melanie “Mel” Burke, an agitated city councilwoman in Toledo, Ohio, who was born into a political family. When her sister, Meredith, is arrested for money laundering and her brother-in-law vanishes after some sort of Ponzi scheme implodes, she finds herself the legal guardian of her teenage niece, Lennox (Taylor Spreitler, Days of our Lives), and nephew, Ryder (Nick Robinson, Boardwalk Empire). Her screen partner plays a former commodities trader who lost everything in the wake of Mel’s brother-in-law’s Ponzi scheme and wound up living in his Porsche, which is also about to be repossessed.

    Here’s the sitch! Mel is so busy and giddy that she fails to connect with her niece and nephew. As punishment for her success, she needs an aide, someone to whip the children into shape, lend structure and discipline, cook dinner and put the house in apple-pie order. As for Joe, he needs a live to live and a job. So said, so done… Before one can say Jack Robinson, he becomes the family’s new “manny”. Among the people who gravitate around Mel rank Stephanie Krause (Lucy DeVito, Crumbs, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), her legislative assistant, Rhonda Cheng (Elizabeth Ho, Castle, 2 Broke Girls), her press secretary, Russell Burke (Christopher Rich, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Desperate Housewives), her senator father, Monica Burke (Rita Rudner, Something So Right, The Nanny), her neurotic mother, George Karpelos, Jr. (Scott Michael Foster, Greek, Californication), her 24-year-old lover, and many others who are waiting to be discovered.
