Synopsis

Look who's making the news again!

One of NY's most beloved news anchors, Mike Henry (Michael J. Fox, Spin City, Family Ties), put his career on hold to spend more time with his family and focus on his health after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's.

But now five years later, with the kids busy growing up and Mike growing restless, it just might be time for him to get back to work.

Having never wanted Mike to leave in the first place, his old boss Harris Green (Wendell Pierce, Treme, The Wire) jumped at the chance to get him back on TV. The trick, as it's always been, was to make Mike think it was his idea.

After several - okay, many - failed attempts, Mike's family, anxious to see him out of the house, finally succeeded in getting him to run into Green. Now their plan is in motion. He'll be back to juggling home, family and career, just like the old days - only better.

Also starring are Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), Conor Romero (American Gangster), Juliette Goglia (Easy A), Jack Gore and Katie Finneran (I Hate My Teenage Daughter).

Still got it... making his return to television, Michael J. Fox also serves as executive producer on the new comedy from executive producer/writer Sam Laybourne (Cougar Town) and executive producer/director Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends with Benefits).

The Michael J. Fox Show is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Olive Bridge Entertainment.
