After his friends all go their separate ways, Joey Tribianni leaves New York for Hollywood to pursue his acting career full-time. His slutty sister Gina buys him a nice apartment and he finds a new roommate in his 20-year old nephew Michael (Gina had him when she was 16), who is literally a rocket scientist. Michael's book smarts and Joey's people smarts allow them to help each other out whenever they can and make perfect companions for one another.
