While Michael J. Fox's upcoming comedy series doesn't yet have a title, it does already have a full twenty-two episode order from NBC. And now, it also has Ana Nogueira.
Coming in Fall 2013, the family comedy series is a semi-autobiographical story dealing with Michael J. Fox's own dealings with Parkinson's disease. Set and shot in New York City (where Fox resides), the show is about Mike Burnaby (Fox), a husband and father of three in New York City juggling the challenges of family and career while dealing with his condition. A former lead anchor for a local NY station, Mike decides to go back to work after Parkinson’s forced him to take time off. Will Gluck ('Friends with Benefits') will produce the series and direct at least the pilot episode.
So where does Ana Nogueira fit in? She will play Kay, Mike’s very young, very sweet, hard-working but very emotional segment producer. A relative unknown, Nogueira had a recurring role on 'The Battery's Down,' and has starred in made-for-tv movies besides. This role is a massive boon for Nogueira's career; being showcased on NBC is one thing but the opportunity to learn from a master of small and silver screen like Fox is invaluable.
