Michael J. Fox's new NBC comedy series adds Katie Finneran, Conor Romero and Jack Goor
The as-yet-untitled series has a 22-episode commitment and will launch in the fall. It's a single camera comedy partly inspired by Fox's real life and stars the five-time Emmy winner as Mike Burnaby, a New York City newscaster who goes back to work and is forced to juggle his family, career and Parkinson's disease.
Two-time Tony winner Finneran ("Noises Off," "Promises, Promises") will play his unemployed, self-absorbed, single sister. Finneran also starred on FOX's "I Hate My Teenage Daughter" and "Wonderfalls."
Romero is set as Burnaby's college-dropout older son and Goor as Burnaby's 7-year-old youngest child.
"Treme" star Wendell Pierce is already part of the cast as Burnaby's boss.
