Burbank, CA (August 29, 2011) - The Lawrence brothers return to television in two all-new, back-to-back episodes of "Melissa & Joey" premiering Wednesday, August 31 (8:00 - 9:00 PM ET/PT).
In "The Other Longo," Joe's younger brother, Tony (Matthew Lawrence), shows up without any notice and asks to stay at the house. At first Tony is little more than a nuisance, but Mel changes her views on him once she sees what a wonderful photographer he is. Things take a different turn once some photos Tony shoots of Mel wind up on the Internet.
In "Teacher/Teacher," after Ryder gets a bad grade on his history paper, Joe talks to the teacher, Mr. McKay, (Andrew Lawrence) in hopes of raising his grade, but manages to only make things worse. Distressed at how upset Ryder gets with him, Joe goes back to the teacher to sort things out. Meanwhile Mel tries to be the "cool aunt" by taking underage Lennox to a concert.
"Melissa & Joey" is a half-hour multi-cam comedy executive-produced by Bob Young & David Kendall, Paula Hart, Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence. Melissa Joan Hart, Joey Lawrence, Taylor Spreitler and Nick Robinson star. "The Other Longo" was written by Seth Kurland and directed by David Trainer with Lucy DeVito and Matthew Lawrence guest starring. "Teacher/Teacher" was written by Larry Reitzer and directed by Jeff Melman, with Andrew Lawrence and Dave Florek guest starring.
