"Untitled Michael J. Fox Sitcom" (NBC, Fall TBD)
We know very little about which shows will find primetime berths for the fall of 2013, but one show that you can guarantee will be there is a new sitcom starring "Family Ties" and "Spin City" favorite Michael J Fox. NBC won an intense bidding war for Fox's return to regular series TV thanks to a series order for a full 22 episodes. The single-camera comedy pilot, based on Fox's life as a father of three dealing with his family and with Parkinson's, will be written by Will Gluck and Sam Laybourne and directed by Gluck ("Easy A"). Thus far, no additional information has percolated out beyond the central premise of five-time Emmy winner Fox. We're still excited. NBC has several other possibilities for Fall 2013, including the pirate drama "Crossbones" and the latest take on "Dracula," though neither show has been confirmed for this year.
