Michael J. Fox Plans Return to TV

Originally posted 08/15/2002 01:00AM

Four-time Emmy winner Michael J. Fox is getting ready to come home to TV, this time to write and executive produce a family comedy pilot for ABC, according to both Variety and the Hollywood Reporter. The show is to be produced by Touchstone Television and DreamWorks TV, which also did "Spin City," on which he starred from 1996 to 2000. In a statement to the trade papers, ABC Entertainment president Susan Lyne said: "Michael has proven to be as skilled a writer as he is an actor, and that's saying quite a lot. ABC has been part of Michael's past with 'Spin City,' so we couldn't be more thrilled at the possibility of also being part of his future with this new comedy project." No word on whether or not the star, 41, will also appear in front of the cameras. The new show, as yet untitled, is based on an idea of Fox's and reportedly centers around a larger-than-life pro hockey player who retires and finds himself spending a lot of time at home with his family. As the Reporter notes, Fox, who recently published a best-selling memoir called "Lucky Man," has been spending a lot of time with his wife and four kids after leaving "Spin City" because of his battle with Parkinson's disease.

State of Grace

Originally posted 03/14/2002 12:00PM

At 24, Michael J. Fox was a Hollywood phenom, the star of both TV's Family Ties and Back to the Future, the movie box office champ of 1985. Six years later, in the middle of the rocket ride, he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, an incurable, degenerative neurological disorder that affects some 1.5 million Americans. (The vast majority are over age 50 when they are diagnosed; only 10 percent are, as Fox was, under 40.) As he writes in this exclusive excerpt from his new autobiography, Lucky Man, the diagnosis, which he kept hidden from all but his closest friends and family for seven years, launched him on a physical and spiritual odyssey that changed his life -- in many ways, remarkably, for the better.
