The Michael J. Fox Show (formerly Untitled Michael J. Fox Comedy) was the first series to be picked up for the 2013-2014 season by any network. Subject to heavy bidding from multiple networks, the Sony Pictures Television produced series landed a 22 episode straight-to-series order from NBC back in August 2012. Based partly on Fox’s own life, the series stars Michael J. Fox as a caring husband dealing with family, career and the challenges of Parkinson’s. Want to know more about The Michael J. Fox Show? TVWise presents a first look at the new series

Look who’s making the news again. One of New York’s most beloved news anchors, Mike Henry (Michael J. Fox), put his career on hold to spend more time with his family and focus on his health after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. But five years later, with the kids busy growing up and Mike growing restless, it just might be time for him to get back to work. Having never wanted Mike to leave in the first place, his old boss
Harris Green (Wendell Pierce) jumped at the chance to get him back on TV. The trick, as it’s always been, was to make Mike think it was his idea. Now the plan is in motion and Mike will be back to juggling home, family, and career — just like the old days, but only better.
