Michael J. Fox is working on a single-camera comedy series that will mark his return to primetime television in 2013, according to Vulture. The show is expected to be developed by Sony Pictures Television and will be the product of Fox’s collaboration with director Will Gluck (Easy A) and writer Sam Laybourne (Cougar Town, Arrested Development).
The famed actor, known for his work on Family Ties and the Back to the Future trilogy, is said to be in a bidding war with the major networks. As Vulture reports, the only rumored detail about the show’s plot is that it will be inspired by Fox’s own life. We’ll just have to wait to find out what happens next, but it’s a fair assumption that the public will be happy to have Fox back in primetime.
