ABC Family has given the green light to two comedy pilots: the first one stars Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence and the other one comes from Boy Meets World creator Michael Jacobs, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In the untitled Hart-Lawrence multicamera project, the Sabrina, the Teenage Witch star will play Hailey, a political dynasty wild child-turned-politician who takes in her teenage niece and pre-adolescent nephew when her sister goes to prison and her brother-in-law flees. She turns for help to Jack (Lawrence), who, desperate for a job, moves in and becomes the family's "manny."
Bob Young and David Kendall penned the script and are executive producing the pilot with Hart, Lawrence and Paula Hart.
The untitled single-camera project, written and executive produced by Jacobs, examines parenting philosophies. It centers on a young father, recently laid off from his architecture firm, who begins to mentor his underdog middle daughter, while his veterinarian wife shares a closer bond with their Type A older daughter.
Both pilots will film this fall in Los Angeles.
