Check out your first look at Taylor Spreitler as Lennox on ABC Family’s upcoming series, Melissa & Joey!
The 17-year-old actress shared about working with former teen queen Melissa Joan Hart: “She’s so great! She’s so funny and nothing like I was expecting. She’s very…I don’t even know the word I’m looking for (laughs). You would expect someone who has been in this business for as long as she has been to be like ‘Okay, let’s get this done and then I need to leave,” but she’s exactly the opposite. She jokes around a lot with us and she’s always talking — we’ve gossiped on set a lot — and making the cast comfortable on set.”
Melissa & Joey follows 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 (Nick Robinson). Spread too thin to manage by herself, help comes in the unlikely form of Joe (Joey Lawrence) who, desperate for a job, moves in and becomes the family’s “manny.”
The series premieres on Tuesday, August 17 @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
