Parkinson's disease in TV sitcom
“Not making fun of myself” says Michael J Fox, “Just showing a guy who looks at life with humour."
It is a long time since I mentioned Michael J Fox on my blog. He has been very busy raising hundreds of millions of dollars for research into Parkinson’s disease and now he is to return to American television starring in a sitcom about someone who decides to return to working in television despite struggling with Parkinson’s disease!
That will certainly put the fight to find a cure in the headlines.
“Not making fun of myself," the actor wrote in a tweet, after a trailer for the show was released this week, "or other people with [Parkinson's Disease] or Parkinson's itself. Just showing a guy who looks at life with humour."
