(AP) On his upcoming NBC comedy, Michael J. Fox will play a newscaster who quits his job because of Parkinson's Disease but returns to work in the show's first episode because a new medical regimen has helped him control many of the disease's symptoms.


NBC said Sunday the comedy closely tracks many aspects of Fox's personal life and tries to have fun with an image that has left him an object of pity-fueled admiration.


The show doesn't have a title yet. NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said it will premiere in September. Although the schedule isn't set yet, NBC is aiming to put it on Thursday night, where 30 Rock and The Office are leaving in the next few months.


Salke said Fox is meeting this week with actresses who could potentially play his wife on the show.
