Betsy Brandt, best known for her role as the mineral-skeptic Marie Schrader on Breaking Bad, is headed to NBC. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brandt is set to portray the wife in Michael J. Fox's new semi-autobiographical sitcom for the network.
NBC has reportedly ordered 22 episodes of the comedy, which is still untitled. Fox is set to star as a character based off of himself - a husband with three kids living in New York City and dealing with Parkinson's disease in addition to family, career, and social challenges. In addition to Brandt, Tony-award winning actress Katie Finneran, and The Wire's Wendell Pierce will also star.
There's no official word on when production will start, but NBC boss Bob Greenblatt recently expressed his hopes that the series would land on this year's Fall schedule.
