Michael J. Fox to make TV comeback

It has been over a decade since Michael J. Fox graced television screens with his last full-time role on Spin City, but the Back to the Future star is finally ready to make his comeback. In a comedy loosely based on his own experience, Fox is set to play a husband and father of three who’s dealing with career and family issues, as well as Parkinson’s disease, which Fox suffers from in real life. Co-created by Sam Laybourne (Arrested Development, Cougar Town) and Will Gluck (Friends With Benefits, Easy A), this currently unnamed series is sure to be a comedic smash. Clearly, NBC agrees because they have already ordered an astounding 22 episodes of the show, instead of going through a standard pilot process. The show is set to premiere in the fall of 2013 and marks Fox’s return to NBC, the network that started his career with Family Ties 30 years ago. ~Morgan Bates

    I seldom watch primetime, but I will watch this show because I respect the man. To this day, Rush Limbaugh, is one of the very few people I would punch in the face over his Michael J. Fox comments.
