The Michael J. Fox Show episodes 1&2 “Pilot;Neighbor” premiere Thursday, September 26 (9:00-10:00 p.m.) on NBC.

Episode Synopsis: The Michael J. Fox Show Episode 1 “Pilot”- One of NY’s most beloved news anchors, Mike Henry (Michael J. Fox, “Spin City”, “Family Ties”), put his career on hold to spend more time with his family and focus on his health after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. But now five years later, with the kids busy growing up and Mike growing restless, it just might be time for him to get back to work. Having never wanted Mike to leave in the first place, his old boss Harris Green (Wendell Pierce, “Treme”, “The Wire”) jumped at the chance to get him back on TV. The trick, as it’s always been, was to make Mike think it was his idea. After several – okay, many – failed attempts, Mike’s family, anxious to see him out of the house, finally succeeded in getting him to “run into” Green. Now their plan is in motion. He’ll be back to juggling home, family and career, just like the old days – only better.

The Michael J. Fox Show Episode 2- At Annie’s (Betsy Brandt) request, Mike (Michael J. Fox) confronts a noisy (and attractive) upstairs neighbor (guest star Tracy Pollan), who seems to develop a bit of a crush on him. Though Annie thinks it’s cute, Mike refuses to admit he enjoys the added attention. To Eve’s (Juliette Goglia) chagrin, Ian (Conor Romero) tries to court her new friend from school. After enjoying the perks of being mistaken for a single mom during a day out with Graham (Jack Gore), Leigh (Katie Finneran) considers letting the ruse play out a little longer.
