'The Michael J Fox Show' trailer appears online - watch

Michael J Fox's eagerly-anticipated new sitcom has released a three-minute trailer. Scroll down and click 'play' to watch it.

It's simply titled The Michael J Fox Show and sees Fox in his first starring role in a TV series since Spin City, a sitcom he appeared in from 1996 to 2001.

Fox, famed for his roles in Teen Wolf and Back To The Future, revealed in 1998 that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease several years previously. Over the last decade, he has been seen on screen less frequently, though he has made memorable guest appearances in The Good Wife and Scrubs.

The premise of The Michael J Fox Show echoes the actor's personal life, with Fox playing a former news anchor who returns to work after spending a lengthy period of time as a stay-at-home dad following the onset of Parkinson's disease. The show's cast also includes Wendell Pierce from The Wire and Breaking Bad's Betsy Brandt.

It's set to premiere on US network NBC this autumn (2013) and looks likely to be picked up by a British broadcaster pretty swiftly.
