New Michael J. Fox Show Lands a Series Commitment on NBC

August 20, 2012 by  

Michael J. Fox is returning to NBC: 30 years after FAMILY TIES’ debut, NBC has landed the rights to Fox’s new comedy series and ordered a full 22 episode season before production has even begun on the pilot.

“To bring Michael J. Fox back to NBC is a supreme honor and we are thrilled that one of the great comedic television stars is coming home again,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, in a statement. “From the moment we met with Michael to hear his unique point of view about this new show, we were completely captivated and on board. He is utterly relatable, optimistic, and in a class by himself, and I have no doubt that the character he will create – and the vivid family characters surrounding him – will be both instantly recognizable and hilarious. Being in business with him is a supreme pleasure.”

“We have all been such huge fans of Michaels and hoped one day he would return to television with his own show,” said Jennifer Salke, President of NBC Entertainment. “He had us at hello with his warmth, humor and incredible charisma. The fact that he pitched us a show that was funny, heartwarming and personal was the icing on the cake! We are over the moon and thankful Michael, Will (Gluck) and Sam (Laybourne) will be a cornerstone of our NBC comedy brand.”

Fox expressed his own pleasure at returning to the network he called home three decades ago.

“I’m extremely pleased to be back at NBC with a great creative team and a great show,” said Fox. “Bob Greenblatt and all the folks at the network have given me a warm welcome home, and I’m excited to get to work.”

As for what the new series will be about, NBC says it’s a single-camera series that “features Fox as a husband and father of three from New York City dealing with family, career, and challenges — including Parkinson’s — all loosely drawn from Fox’s real life.” It is currently set to debut in Fall 2013.

Fox hasn’t been a stranger to television — he recently did a guest arc on THE GOOD WIFE — but are you happy he’ll be returning to NBC in a comedy series?
