And so, it begins. We knew that with 'Breaking Bad's' final episodes due to begin airing this summer, eventually its stellar cast would go their separate ways with new TV projects. Sad as that is, at least they've got their pick of the litter! Betsy Brandt (Marie Schrader) is the first 'Breaking Bad' star to lineup her post-AMC career, taking the spousal role in NBC's upcoming untitled Michael J. Fox sitcom, loosely based on the actor's own struggle with Parkinson's. Find out the full details and cast of Michael J. Fox's new series inside!
Michael J. Fox
A few months ago the TV landscape erupted in a cavalcade of cheers with the news that one-time 'Family Ties' and 'Back to the Future' star Michael J. Fox would return to TV full-time with a brand-new sitcom. Not only that, but the buzz-worthy one-camera effort would also loosely chronicle Fox's own struggles with Parkinson's, but who exactly will the celebrated actor play when the series debuts in fall 2013? And what does 'The Wire' and 'Treme' star Wendell Pierce have to do with it?
Well that certainly didn't take very long, but then again the last thing you want to do is be shaky around Michael J. Fox. Horribly bad taste aside, Michael J. Fox fans can rest easy knowing that the former 'Family Ties' star will officially return to TV, as NBC outbid the other major networks to land the actor's upcoming family comedy project. Still, it took a pretty penny on the part of the peacock to lock down the Fox, so what about the offer lured him back to NBC?
Former 'Family Ties' and 'Back to the Future' star Michael J. Fox is getting ready to shake things up (only time, we swear) across all the major networks, as the beloved actor is eying a return to TV with his own single-camera comedy series. The only hitch is, the project isn't attached to any specific network, and all of them want in on the action! So what brought Michael back to the spotlight, and what's his new TV show all about?
