What is it? Like Robin Williams, Fox is another telly star-turned-bona fide movie man returning to the small screen, though Fox at least had Spin City since his breakthrough. This effort, co-created by Will Gluck, is loosely based on Fox’s own life. He plays Michael “Mike” Henry, a news anchor who gave up his career after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease to focus on his family (including wife Annie, played by Breaking Bad’s Betsy Brandt) and health. But when he tries to get back to work, comedy ensues - judging by this snippet, at least. We hope this doesn’t keep him so busy he can’t keep up his show-stealing appearances in The Good Wife.
