Michael J. Fox is headed back to his first TV network home for his new comedy.
The five-time Emmy winner's new family comedy project has been ordered straight to series by NBC, the same network which aired Family Ties three decades ago.
"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," NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said 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."

I think that anyone different from the "norm" should be hidden away, never to be seen by the public.
What was the name of that Country Western singer who had a severe stutter and made the stutter part pf his act?
Well I haven't really watched him recently on TV so I am not sure how bad his symptons are - but if they are getting severe, I'd imagine it would the folks that enjoy watching train wrecks.
He's been on the Good HouseWife.
what the heck happened to his moral compass?
You talk about 'moral compass' and then suggest that people with an illness or disability should be hidden away because it makes you feel uncomfortable. Seriously? I love your posts - you crack me up every time.
seriously? not purposefully making others uncomfortable is a major plank in the civilized man's code of behavior.
