Michael J. Fox: Back Where He Belongs
After a bidding war between the four major networks, NBC came out on top for the services of T.V. icon Michael J. Fox. The chief at NBC, Robert Greenblatt, promised to air 22 episodes of Fox’s new comedy without even seeing anything close to a pilot. That is the confidence that NBC has in Fox, who starred for them as Alex Keaton, in Family Ties.
The show will be out in the fall of 2013, which will feature Fox as a dad that will also incorporate his Parkinson’s disease. Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1991 and has fought through it for years. The last show that Fox starred in was Spin City, which he left in 2000 due to his disease worsening. At the time Michael J. Fox was one of the biggest and most popular stars in the world.
NBC is still trying to bring back the magic that propelled them to number one for 68 straight weeks, starting in the early 80’s. With shows like Cheers, The Cosby Show, Golden Girls and Family Ties, NBC’s comedy line-up was the best on T.V. for many years. The other networks didn’t have a chance in matching the success of NBC’s deep talent of stars.
Michael J. Fox has done many projects over the years, but now he has set his sights much higher. He is determined to get back on top of the charts with a major network’s prime-time slot. He has always faced his problems head on and will continue to fight his way to the top.
