Michael J. Fox Returns in a New Comedy Series Next Fall Leave a reply I was very happy to learn that Michael J. Fox is returning to network series TV. The guy is a great actor…I should say a great comic actor. Seems like it’s called “The Michael J. Fox Show,” which makes a lot of sense. It premieres this fall. But as of now I can’t give you the date. Fox plays Mike Henry, a former news anchor suffering from Parkinson’s disease, who returns to a local New York news anchor desk.
