The Michael J. Fox Show (2013)

Michael Fox as "Mike"

When Mike Henry gets a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, he decides to put his news-anchor career on hold to focus on his health and family. After five years at home, Mike is growing restless. His family concocts a strategy with his former boss, Harris Green, to get him working again: They'll arrange for Mike to "run into" Green and come up with the plan, himself, to return to work! With Mike back to juggling his work and home lives, things return to the way they were prediagnosis -- but somehow better.

Spin City (1996)

Michael Fox as "Mike Flaherty"

New York Mayor Randall Winston needs help running the city. So, for much of the series, he counts on Deputy Mayor Mike Flaherty to help him. Flaherty, usually a man who is calm and organized, can "spin" out of control when it comes to his personal life, the ditzy mayor, and his abnormal co-workers. For the show's final two seasons, Flaherty is replaced as deputy mayor by Charlie Crawford after Michael J. Fox, who played Flaherty, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and left the show.

Family Ties (1982)

Michael Fox as "Alex P. Keaton"

Steven and Elyse Keaton, once 1960s radicals, now find themselves in Reagan-era American trying to raise a traditional suburban family. Son Alex P. Keaton is an ambitious young Republican, and his sister Mallory is a shallow victim of the corporate culture, obsessed with music, clothes and boys. Their only normal kid is young Jennifer, a bit of a tomboy. In later seasons, the Keatons add a fourth child, Andrew. Most of the comedy arose from the conflict between the liberal parents and the conservative children.
