Michael J. Fox is reportedly in talks to make a return to the small screen, just over a decade after he left his starring role on Spin City.

The 51-year-old actor slowed down his schedule as the effects of Parkinson's disease took their toll.

Michael has continued to work but was mainly doing voiceover roles for movies like Stuart Little and Interstate 60 and had guest spots on Scrubs and The Good Wife.

But now, it is reported that Sony Pictures Television is developing a sitcom for Fox for the fall 2013 season, although more in-depth details are scarce.

Vulture claims that networks are in a "feeding frenzy" and "bidding war" to air the series.

Michael is said to be teaming with director Will Gluck (Easy A) and writer Sam Laybourne (Cougar Town, Arrested Development) for the show.

The Back to the Future star was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1991 and started up his own foundation in a bid to find a cure for the disease.

He told ABC News earlier this year that a new combination of drugs was helping him with his ailments, which includes tics and tremors, and the medication has enabled him to work more.

The popular actor made his name on Family Ties in the '80s playing lovable Alex Keaton.
