We can’t remember the last time that NBC made a move that was actually good for business, but they’ve finally made a move that’s going to keep the network in the comedy good books for 2013: NBC has won the bidding war for the new Michael J. Fox project.
Just how did NBC seal the coveted deal? By making a deal that even the best production teams in the world don’t get offered: A full 22-episode season with the promise to both make and air all episodes. That deal was surprising enough, but it’s nearly unbelievable when you take into consideration that the pilot hasn’t even been filmed yet.
The single-camera comedy is to be fully shot in New York, the same location as Fox’s last sitcom Spin City. So just what is the show about? We have no idea. In fact, no one has any idea. Insiders are saying that outside of Fox, the show producers and the team at NBC they pitched the deal to, details of the pilot are going to be kept under wraps until they start promoting the show in 2013.
We don’t really know what to expect from the show, but all we can say is: PLEASE be about Back To The Future, please please please please!
