The sitcom is still unnamed. It's known, though, that Fox's show will incorporate Parkinson's. Fox's character will be a newscaster who quit his job due to his illness. Fox himself quit his hit TV series, "Spin City," when he decided he could no longer effectively work on-set with the symptoms of his Parkinson's Disease.
Brandt will play Fox's still unnamed wife on Fox's still unnamed show. She is best known for her role as Marie Schrader in "Breaking Bad."
On that show, obviously hugely different from a sitcom, the 36-year-old actress plays Marie Schrader, Skyler's sister (Skyler is the wife of Walter White, the protagonist of the show, and is married to Hank Schrader.
That marriage is inconvenient for Walter, a teacher turned drug lord. Hank is a DEA agent.
Fox's sitcom was green-lighted without a pilot. It was picked up by NBC after what was called a feeding frenzy. It is expected to first air this fall.
