In his own words, the TV icon opens up about why he's turning his real life into a family sitcom, The Michael J. Fox Show.
I started to think about doing my own show as a result of my guest-starring roles on Boston Legal, Rescue Me and The Good Wife. I was feeling good that viewers accepted my characters and could distinguish them from me, for whatever brief amount of time. And then it just clicked with me that acting is what I do. It's what I like to do. So I'd better have a really good reason for not doing it.
Anne Heche has signed a first-look producing deal with Universal Television, TVGuide.com has learned. The pact includes an acting component as well.
"Anne has proven, time and again, to be both a wonderfully gifted actor and a hard-working producer with fantastic taste. We're looking forward to working together on all fronts," NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in a statement.
Anne Heche is staying at NBC, but she's got a shiny new gig.

Heche will play Susan Rodriguez-Jones, the new...
It's going to be a long off-season, especially where network TV is concerned, if the offerings don't soon improve from the dregs on display on this inauspicious opening night. Think of it as an excuse to catch up on repeats — or to dive into your DVR and/or On Demand archive to see what's new to you.
The only advice I have after enduring the pilot episode of NBC's woeful comedy Save Me is: Save yourself. This shrill parable of redemption, being burned off in back-to-back episodes (Thursday, 8/7c), is like a spiritual Enlightened for the tone deaf. Anne Heche, at her most manic (and that's saying something), stars as Beth Harper, a heroine possessed with an unbearable lightness of being — or you could just stop at unbearable — when she is suddenly transformed from an "angry drunken bitch" (her words) into a cockeyed optimist seemingly filled with a holy spirit after nearly choking to death on a sandwich.
It's been a long time coming, but Anne Heche's new comedy Save Me will finally premiere Thursday at 8/7c on NBC — and TVGuide.com has the first look.
In Save Me, Beth Harper (Heche) starts to believe that she is channeling God after she has an accident. In the exclusive clip below — from the second episode airing immediately following the series premiere — Beth and husband Tom (Michael Landes) have to adjust to Beth's newfound ability to communicate with God.
