NBC’s most high-profile new fall comedy is enlisting Anne Heche for a multi-episode arc.

The Michael J. Fox Show has signed the actress to play Susan Rodriguez-Jones, the new anchor at NBC 4, the New York station where Fox’s character Mike is returning to work as a corespondent after taking off five years while battling Parkinson’s. She’s described as a “sharp, savvy and tough-as-nails” anchor who was Mike’s producer many years ago when they worked together in Orlando. After a suspicious incident that involved “losing” Mike in the Everglades, they’ve had a rivalry ever since. Heche previously starred in the NBC sitcom Save Me and was a regular on HBO’s Hung and ABC’s Men in Trees.

Here’s the trailer for The Michael J. Fox Show, which will debut at 9 p.m. on Sept. 26 for a one-hour launch, and then shifts into its regular 9:30 p.m. slot.
