The Family Ties and Spin City star, 51, is working with director Will Gluck (Easy A) and writer Sam Laybourne (Cougar Town and Arrested Development) on a comedy reportedly based on his own life, sources told Vulture.

All four major networks are in a "feeding frenzy" and "bidding war" over the project.

Fox has been married to Tracy Pollan (once his Family Ties love interest) since 1988, and the couple share four kids. The Back to the Future star announced in 1998 that he'd been living with Parkinson's Disease for nearly a decade. He's been raising millions of dollars to find a cure for the illness through his Michael J. Fox Foundation, founded in 2000.
