Michael J. Fox is coming back to TV
One of my favorite stars of the 80s, Michael J. Fox, is making a return to television after a long absence. The “Family Ties,” “Back to the Future” and “Spin City” star left the spotlight after he went public with his diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease in 1998. Since then, he’s been keeping busy with voiceover work and the occasional guest starring role, as well as his ongoing work to raise money for Parkinson’s research. This new special will focus on the positive, and is titled “Michael J. Fox: Adventures of an Incurable Optimist.”The Michael J. Fox special, which airs Thursday, May 7, at 10 p.m., will follow the actor as he looks to spread his positive attitude to others during a time of economic turmoil.[From Variety]
Fox, who first revealed in 1998 that he suffers from Parkinson’s disease, will travel around the world for the special, including the Himalayan nation of Bhutan — described as a “modern-day Shangri La.”
While traveling, Fox will interview both famous and everyday people on how they conjure up optimism and hope.
Vicki Dummer, ABC’s co-head of alternative series, specials and latenight, called the special a “compelling look at the transformational power of optimism.”
In recent years Fox has turned his attention to his foundation, which focuses on Parkinson’s research, and he just wrote the book “Always Looking Up,” which hits bookstores March 31.
Michael J. Fox is just one of those guys you never heard a bad word about - even before his illness. He has been married to actress Tracy Pollan for 20 years, and lives in Vermont with his family. His situation really makes you wonder why bad things happen to good people. Since being diagnosed, Fox has been an outspoken advocate for research for Parkinson’s. I really do hope they find a cure in our lifetime. He is a role model for staying positive in the face of tragedy.

Love him. He'll always be my sweetie. He was possibly my #1 teenage crush, starting with Alex P. Keaton and then Marty McFly. I've always heard he's super nice too.
I just loved Alex P. Keaton! He's got to be one of the most likable people on the planet.
Aww bless his heart. Would kill to see some Family Ties reruns.
