Joey Lawrence has been on some well-known TV shows. He first began working at age six on the hit show “Gimme a Break.” Then he was on “Blossom,” which was another hit series. Lawrence, who is always looking to improve his craft, successfully made the transition from teen icon to a legitimate actor. Today he continues to build on his incredible resume. From movies to TV shows to performing on stage Joey is always hard at work.
Lawrence’s current hit sitcom, “Melissa & Joey” is on ABC Family. He co-stars with Melissa Joan Hart. “Melissa & Joey” is a show where Melissa, who is a grown-up former wild child of a political family, is now a local politician herself. When her sister ends up in prison and her brother-in-law flees after a scandal hits, Mel must take responsibility for her teenaged niece, Lennox, and nephew, Ryder. Help comes in the unlikely form of Joe, who moves in and becomes the family’s nanny.
