EXCLUSIVE: Ana Nogueira rounds out the regular cast of Michael J. Fox’s NBC series, which has a 22-episode order for a fall 2013 launch. The single-camera comedy, from Sony Pictures TV and producer-director Will Gluck, is inspired by Fox’s real life and stars him as Mike Burnaby, a husband and father of three in New York City juggling the challenges of family and career while dealing with Parkinson’s disease. 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. Nogueira will play Kay, Mike’s very young, very sweet, hard-working but very emotional segment producer. Nogueira, repped by Innovative and Gartner/Green, co-starred in the Fox comedy pilot El Jefe last season.
