Michael J. Fox is making a comeback to the boob tube.
Fox — who’s worked sparsely since leaving Spin City in 2000 to focus on his battle with Parkinson’s disease — is in business with Sony Pictures Television on a comedy that would debut next year, and likely air on one of the major networks.
Fox, 51, will team up with director Will Gluck (Easy A) and writer Sam Laybourne (Cougar Town and Arrested Development) on the still-untitled project, Vulture reported.
The native Canadian in recent years has made cameos on show such as Rescue Me, Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Good Wife.
He told ABC in May that medication has helped temper the tics Parkinson’s brings on, re-opening the door on his acting career.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported last week, Hook star Bob Hoskins retired from acting to focus on his battle with Parkinson’s.
