Michael J. Fox says Parkinson's won't be big feature of new sitcom

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Michael J. Fox may have Parkinson's disease. But he feels the disease doesn't have him - nor does he feel it will be a major focus of the audience for his new sitcom. In "The Michael J. Fox Show," he plays a former NBC newscaster who has Parkinson's. The series sees him make the venture back to work after his kids grow up. Fox says he didn't think about how others who have Parkinson's will react to the show - he says the show is a reflection of his own experiences. He also feels viewers won't be put off by seeing his character with shaking hands on the series. "The Michael J. Fox Show" premieres September 26.
