Fox returning to small screen this fall with show on NBC

– On his upcoming NBC comedy, Michael J. Fox will play a newscaster who had quit his job because of Parkinson’s Disease but returns to work in the show’s first episode because a new medical regimen has helped him control many of the disease’s symptoms.

It mirrors the life of the former “Family Ties” and “Spin City” star, who said last year that drugs have helped minimize the physical tics of Parkinson’s and have enabled him to take on more acting jobs.

NBC is penciling Fox’s comedy in for September on its low-rated Thursday schedule. The long-running Thursday comedy “30 Rock” ends its run Jan. 31, and “The Office” will exit this spring.

In the family comedy, Fox’s character will be the father of two teenage children and a younger boy, Jennifer Salke, the network’s entertainment president, said Sunday. It will be set in New York City, and filmed there, too, she said.

Fox has appeared in limited roles over the past few years, most notably as a lawyer in CBS’ “The Good Wife.”
