Michael J. Fox Coming Back To NBC

Aug 20 2012, 8:14pm CDT | by

The very network where he got his start on TV

A new series is coming to NBC, with Michael J. Fox as one of the central characters. That might have been a headline you could have read in a newspaper more than 30 years ago, and it's true again today.

The difference this time is that instead of being just one of the ensemble cast, Fox will be the headline star of the new show, which is set to debut in the fall of 2013.

The untitled series is the latest in what appears to be a new trend of networks giving the green lights to shows without first requesting a pilot.

So the first episode that will be put together will in fact be the first episode you see on TV.

It's going to be a single-camera comedy, but other than that not many details have been confirmed. NBC picking up the show is symbolic, since that was the network that picked up Fox's very first TV gig on a little show called Family Ties.

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 chairman Bob Greenblatt said in a statement.

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

Jul 23 2014 2:41pm CDT | Source: Huffington Post

According to reality, this 9-year-old piano prodigy might just be the most talented person on the planet. "America's Got Talent" is a show that's given us plenty of amazing performances. We've seen sword swallowers, fire breathers, shadow dancers and, of course, a few magic tricks, but all of that plays second fiddle to one of the show's youngest, and arguably most-tal ...
