US networks are said to be interested in a new project from Michael J. Fox, inspired by his own life.
The former Family Ties and Spin City star has teamed with director Will Gluck (Easy A) and writer Sam Laybourne (Cougar Town, Arrested Development) on a single-camera comedy project that’s being developed by Sony Pictures Television for a 2013 launch.
Vulture reports all four major network chiefs have heard the pitch, and industry sources say it’s now just a matter of which network will offer the most attractive deal.
One network is rumoured to be offering to go straight to series, something that hardly ever happens in broadcast TV anymore.
Fox recently appeared in multiple episodes of The Good Wife.
