Deadline reports that two-time Tony Award winning actress Katie Finneran has joined the cast of Michael J. Fox's upcoming NBC comedy series. The show, which is scheduled to premiere in the fall, has received a 22-episode order from the network.

FOX will portray 'Mike Burnaby,' described as "a husband and father of three in New York City juggling the challenges of family and career while dealing with Parkinson's Disease. Former lead anchor for a local station in NY, Mike decides to go back to work after a new medication helps him manage the effects of his illness."

Finneran will play Mike's "narcissistic, single and jobless sister." The cast will also feature Conor Romero as Mike's college dropout son who comes back to live at home, and Jack Goor as his younger, 7-year-old son. Wendell Pierce plays Mike's boss Harris.

Production on the show is set to begin later this month in New York.

Katie Finneran received Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Awards for her performance in the recent Broadway revival of Promises, Promises, as well as Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for her performance in the Broadway revival of Noises Off. She currently stars as 'Miss Hannigan' in the Broadway revival of Annie.
