Michael J. Fox, the former “Back to the Future” and Family Ties star who has made memorable guest appearance in recent years on such shows as The Good Wife and Curb Your Enthusiasm, is preparing to return to TV full time.
According to a report last week by Vulture, Fox is working on a single-camera comedy project along with direct Will Gluck and writer Sam Laybourne, with the idea that the new show would launch next year. The new show, which the report says “will be inspired by Fox’s own life,” has attracted much network interest.
Fox, who went public in 1998 with his diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease, left his sitcom Spin City in 1999, and has not had a starring role on a TV series since. In addition to his guest appearances Fox has devoted much of his time to Parkinson’s research, while also writing a pair of memoirs.
