Joey originated as a 30-minute episode of the TV religious anthology Insight. The title character (Danny Martin) is on the verge of juvenile delinquency. His life is turned around when, in suitably dramatic fashion, he becomes acquainted with God. In a non-sugary, logical fashion, Joey tries to undo bad deeds of past. Joey adroitly utilizes the talents of Juanita Moore and Roxie Roker, two of America's most gifted black actresses.
