Michael J. Fox Returning to Series TV

Michael J. Fox is planning a return to series TV, more than a decade after he left to concentrate on fighting Parkinson’s disease, according to the Associated Press.

The actor will star in a comedy that’s in development at Sony Pictures Television for 2013, according to people with knowledge of the project.

The sources spoke Wednesday to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The project has drawn strong interest from the major networks, they said.

The actor’s publicist did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and Sony declined comment.

The new Sony project was first reported by the entertainment website Vulture.
