It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since Michael J. Fox launched his entertainment career as Alex P. Keaton on the hit NBC series Family Ties. Now Fox is heading back to his former TV home with a new comedy series.
Inspired in part by the actor’s real life, the new show follows Fox as a husband and father of three from New York City dealing with family, career, and challenges, including Parkinson’s disease.
The new show has a full series order for 22 episodes. Easy A director Will Gluck and Arrested Development and Cougar Town writer Sam Laybourne are on board as executive producers and co-creators with the former also directing the pilot.
