‘Today’ Team Pops Up In Trailer For New NBC Michael J. Fox Comedy

NBC is holding its upfront presentation at Radio City Music Hall this morning, and one of the new comedies for the Fall has a TV news plotline.

“The Michael J. Fox Show,” starring, well, Michael J. Fox, has the actor and comedian playing a local TV news anchor named Mike Henry who returns to work after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease.

NBC just released the trailer for the show, which features plenty of jokes at NBC’s expense, and a special appearance by the “Today” anchor team of Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, who interview “Mike Henry” on the morning program. TVNewser hears that “most, if not all” of the major NBC News anchors will appear on the program at least once, playing themselves.

Watch the trailer, after the jump.
