Katie Finneran joins Michael J. Fox NBC project

Michael J. Fox has just gained a sister.

Katie Finneran

Katie Finneran (“Wonderfalls” and “I Hate My Teenage Daughter”) has joined the cast of Fox’s NBC comedy. Conor Romero (“American Gangster”) and Jack Gore have also been signed.

The show is inspired by the former “Family Ties” star’s life. The Peacock Network ordered 22 episodes of the single- camera comedy, which features MJF as a New York City husband and father of three. He deals with life challenges, including Parkinson’s disease.

Finneran will play Mike Burnaby’s (played by Fox) sister Leigh, called a single, jobless narcissist desperately clinging to her youth. Romero will play Mike’s teenaged son Ian, who dropped out of college and returned home. Gore will play Mike’s youngest son, old soul Graham.

Wendell Pierce (“Treme”) has also recently signed on to the series, which now just needs to get Mik a wife, middle child/ daughter, and a sweet exec producer.

The show will premiere in fall 2013. The series is from Sony Pictures TV and Will Gluck’s company. Sam Laybourne and Gluck co- created the series, and Laybourne will pen the project.

Richard Schwartz from Olive Bridge will co- executive produce. Gluck will direct the pilot.

Innovative represents Finneran.

The spelling of Jack Gore's name has been corrected. Thank you for bringing that to our attention Richard.

The actor you have listed in Michael J. Fox's new series playing his youngest son is Jack Gore NOT "Jack Goor". Sony released the incorrect spelling and we are trying to get it corrected. Deadline(dotcom) and imdb(dotcom) now have it spelled correctly. I would be grateful if your site would as well. Thank you, Richard Gore (Jack's father)

She was good in "I hate my teenage daughter". May be not exactly as adorkable as Zooey Deschanel, but definitely funny.
