Forget 26.2 or 13.1. Try .10 or .05 if you want to participate in a race without months (or even minutes) of training.

Michael J. Fox to return to series TV

Michael J. Fox, who hit it big with “Family Ties” in the 80s and “Spin City” in the 90s, is planning a return to series TV.

Fox is currently shopping around a comedy starring himself, according to the Associated Press.

The show, being developed by Sony, has reportedly been to pitched all four major broadcast networks. Fox is in collaboration on the project with movie director Will Gluck (“Easy A,” “Friends With Benefits”) and Sam Laybourne, whose writing credits include ABC-turned-TBS comedy “Cougar Town” and “Arrested Development.”

Fox left “Spin City” several years after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, though he has taken small TV roles over the years, including guest stints on shows such as “Scrubs,” “Curb Your Enthusasim,” and, recently, CBS drama “The Good Wife.”

New York Magazine’s site Vulture, which first reported the story, says that Fox’s show will be based on his own life, and will presumably debut sometime next year.
