BROTHERLY LOVE (NBC/WB 1995-97) - THE COMPLETE SERIES
Brotherly Love is an American sitcom television series that ran from September 16, 1995, to April 1, 1996, on NBC, and then moved to The WB, where it aired from September 15, 1996, until May 18, 1997. The series was created by Jonathan Schmock and Jim Vallely, and produced by Witt/Thomas Productions in association with Touchstone Television (season 1) and Walt Disney Television (season 2). The primary focus of the series is on the relationship of three brothers, played by real-life brothers Joey Lawrence, Matthew Lawrence, and Andrew Lawrence.
A year after his father's fatal accident, Joe Roman (Joey Lawrence) returns to Philadelphia to collect his share of his father's estate, a car customizing business. His reunion with his dad's wife Claire (Melinda Culea) and his half-brothers Matt and Andy is a little rocky.
Despite her best efforts, Claire is struggling to keep the business afloat. Fifteen-year-old Matt, tormented by a number of teen crises, both real and imagined, harbors a lot of resentment toward Joe. And Andy, a wildly imaginative seven-year-old, can't quite hide his need for a father figure. It doesn't take long for Joe to realize how much he's needed, so he accepts Claire's offer to move in and work in the family business.
Downstairs in the garage, Joe works alongside his father's pit-crew chief, the slightly scrambled Lloyd Burwell (Michael McShane), and Louise David (Liz Vassey), a feisty conceptual artist/mechanic who goes by “Lou”. The romantic tension between Lou and Joe grows as the two try to maintain a working relationship.
Upstairs, Joe is becoming a major part of the family he never knew, with all the adjustments, responsibilities, joys, and brotherly love makes it worthwhile.
