Two of your favorite TV stars from the 90's, Melissa Joan Hart & Joey Lawrence, are reuniting for ABC Family's new show "Melissa & Joey."

The half-hour sitcom will premiere with back-to-back episodes on August 17 at 8pm EST. 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, and adolescent nephew, Ryder. Spread too thin to manage by herself, help comes in the unlikely form of Joe (Lawrence) who, desperate for a job, moves in and becomes the family's "manny."

In the second episode, "Moving On," 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.

The show also stars Taylor Spreitler as "Lennox" and Nick Robinson as "Ryder." Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence first partnered together on the ABC Family original movie, "My Fake Fiancé," in April 2009.
