"The Michael J. Fox Show" trailer debuts

It looks like NBC may have a hit in its fall lineup, thanks to Fox. Michael J. Fox that is.

In "The Michael J. Fox Show," the beloved former "Family Ties" actor is making his first move back into television full-time after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1998 while he was starring in "Spin City." And he's playing a father, who, after years of staying home with his family while dealing with the effects of Parkinson's disease, decides to return to his old job on TV as a beloved New York news anchor.

Sound familiar? It should. Fox is using his own life in this semi-autobiographical role as Mike Henry, pulling from his own experiences dealing with his disease. Fox looks great in the trailer, which also looks great. The cast includes Betsy Brandt (Marie on "Breaking Bad") and Wendell Pierce (Bunk on "The Wire" and Antoine Batiste on "Treme").
