A Family for Joe is about the Bankston children, 15-year-old Holly (Juliette Lewis), 16-year-old Nick (David Lascher & Chris Furrh), 9-year-old Chris (Ben Savage), and 7-year-old Mary (Jessica Player) who have been recently orphaned. Rather than have themselves split up into foster care, they find a homeless man, Joe (Robert Mitchum), to live with them and act as their grandfather.

Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly rated the series a D, stating that "the kids are leering little creeps, the jokes are moronic, and Joe's homelessness is already absent from the show's current scripts".

In the DVD series, "The Write Environment", writer Philip Rosenthal (who would go on to create Everybody Loves Raymond) talks about being a staff writer on the series.
