My Two Dads - Synopsis - Netflix
The show begins after Marcy Bradford (played by Emma Samms in the second-season episode “In Her Dreams”), the mother of 12-year-old Nicole Bradford (Keanan), has died. The two men who had competed for the woman's affections before Nicole was born during a summer spent in Key West back in 1974 — Michael Taylor (Reiser), a successful financial advisor; and struggling artist Joey Harris (Evigan), former friends who hated one another because of their mutual interest in Marcy — are awarded joint custody of Nicole. The mix-ups of two single men raising a teenage daughter provided the story each week. Judge Margaret W. Wilbur (Florence Stanley), a family court judge who awarded custody of Nicole to Michael and Joey, would frequently visit the new family. This was because she had bought the building in which Joey lived and was now the live-in landlord. Michael had originally had his own condo uptown, but Nicole staged a sit in at school in Episode 2 because she felt she had no home, and the men decided it would be better to all live in one home and chose Joey's loft. Nicole's actual paternity was never revealed on the show, but in the episode “Pop, the Question”, Michael and Joey — after a falling out — had a DNA test run to determine which of them was Nicole's biological father. The test was conducted against Nicole's wishes, and she destroyed the results before opening them since she was happier not knowing who her father was. Michael and Joey later resolve their differences and reconcile. Judge Wilbur looked at the results, but threw them away without revealing them to the audience. The series came to an end (in the episode called “See You in September?”) when Joey reconnected with a former girlfriend named Sarah and eventually moved to San Francisco to live with her and her daughter, Grace. He keeps in contact with Nicole, Michael and Judge Wilbur, all of whom remained in New York. Nicole made reference to her coming out to San Francisco and visiting him, then she ended her letter to Joey by saying that no matter what or where he was or who he was with, she would always be happy with him as one of her two dads.
