On the heels of her Save Me lead-starring gig, actress Anne Heche was also tapped to play a multi-episode arc on NBC’s upcoming comedy, The Michael J. Fox Show.
Heche will 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.
The upcoming comedy’s special one-hour premiere has been slated to air on Sept. 26 at 9pm.
