Although Christie has won over many outside of the Garden State thanks to his memorable appearances on late-night shows such as Saturday Night Live, this will be Christie's first time on a scripted series.
Emmy winner Fox stars in the series as Mike Henry, a family man who returns to work as a New York TV news anchor after leaving the job five years earlier to battle Parkinson's.
The Michael J. Fox Show premieres on Thursday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c on NBC. Will you watch?
