If you were to ask me what stories I’d be least likely to blog this week, I probably would’ve said something about M.I.A. tweeting links to Mitt Romney’s unreleased tax returns or deleted scenes from The Dark Knight Rises that feature Heath Ledger’s Joker, but if you had specifically asked about the likelihood of a new Michael J. Fox sitcom I would’ve said, “Oh yeah, that’s not happening at all.” Well color me surprised because Vulture is reporting that the Back to the Future actor, along with Easy A director Will Gluck and Arrested Development scribe Sam Laybourne, is shopping a new sitcom to the networks. Details are scant at this point but the new show is said to be based around Fox’s life (and how could it not be, really) and, given Fox’s fame, charm and historic success in TV, it’s generated a lot of interest among the prospective bidders. According to Vulture one network might even skip the pilot stage and offer the project a straight-to-series order, which is an extremely rare occurrence in television today. It’s common knowledge that Fox has dramatically dialed down his TV presence due to his Parkinson’s diagnosis, so it’s curious that he’s returning to television right now. Maybe Fox discovered a new treatment that keeps his illness under control; for instance, maybe he’s part cyborg now, and the show is about him adjusting to life as a machine? RoboFox?
