Joey is the Friends spin-off that focuses on Joey Tribbiani's pursuit of an acting career. In the first episode, he moves from New York City to Los Angeles, illustrating the shift away from the original show. Though Joey is ostensibly about navigating show business, it focuses on friendship, family and romantic relationships. Jennifer Coolidge plays Joey's agent, and Drea de Matteo plays his streetwise older sister. Throughout the series, Joey experiences slowly earned successes and sudden backslides. As always, most of Joey's work is on soap operas, with his hammy yet serious acting mimicking the often mocked overacting that is associated with the genre.
