Michael J. Fox

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Michael J. Fox, 51, is planning a return to series TV, more
than a decade after he left to concentrate on fighting Parkinson’s disease. The
actor, who first gained fame in the 1980s sitcom "Family Ties" and later headlined
"Spin City," will star in a comedy that’s in development at Sony Pictures Television
for 2013, according to people with knowledge of the project. His publicist did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Sony declined comment.

Fox, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991, left "Spin City" in 
2000 and said he intended to focus on helping find a cure for the disease. He
started a foundation, which bears his name, to fund research toward that goal.
