Hi, Bryan Here….
NBC has picked up Michael J. Fox’s new comedy and has given it a 22-episode order. NBC aired ‘Family Ties back in the 80’s, which of course, is where Fox got his start. The series will be a family comedy written by Sam Laybourne of ‘Cougar Town’, and produce by Will Gluck. All of the major networks were wanting this project, but NBC won out.
I’m glad to see Fox back at it again. It seems like Fox wanted to get back into the tv business about a year ago, and when Fox met Gluck, the two hit it off and teamed with Laybourne to get this project off the ground. Everyone is excited about it. I hope it does well.
