Fall TV 2013: 'Michael J. Fox Show' star Betsy Brandt talks working with an icon


Betsy Brandt landed one of the most coveted roles of the upcoming season, starring opposite Michael J. Fox in the five-time Emmy winner's return to TV comedy: "The Michael J. Fox Show."

Brandt, who ends her tenure on AMC's "Breaking Bad" when that series wraps this fall, plays Fox's wife Annie Henry in the series about a retired news anchor (Fox) whose decision to go back to work causes some readjustments in his family's life.

Zap2it spoke with Brandt at NBC's upfront presentation to get her take on working with Fox and what audiences can expect from his return to TV.

"The Michael J. Fox Show" premieres Thursday, Sept. 26 at 9 p.m. on NBC (just three days before the series finale of "Breaking Bad" airs on AMC).
