Michael J. Fox’s Sixty-Minute Book Trailer

Always+Looking+Up+Book+Michael+J.+Fox.jpgTonight Michael J. Fox will release a sixty-minute documentary to support his memoir, “Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist” on ABC.

Published by ABC’s conglomerate sibling, Hyperion, the book focuses on the actor’s struggle with Parkinson’s disease and his work raising money for his foundation. The actor has a rare opportunity–a prime time, hour-long chance to showcase his book on network television.

Here’s Variety‘s review of the documentary: “Having become an activist for Parkinson’s research and funding, Fox goes about the unwieldy task of finding and speaking with other optimists, from cancer-surviving Tour de France champ Lance Armstrong to ordinary farmers to other celebrities, among them Chicago Cubs fan Bonnie Hunt and golf buddy Bill Murray. Fox takes his son to the Obama inauguration and chats with his wife, actress Tracy Pollan, who admits to being not quite as optimistic as he is.”
