By Steven Mitchell,

The untitled Michael J. Fox sitcom has finally got its family.

Easy A actress Juliette Goglia has been cast to be Fox’s daughter, Eve, in the show. The 17-year-old is the last of the family members to be cast says Digital Spy.

Also picked were Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad) as his wife, Kate Finneran (My Teenage Daughter) as his sister and Conor Romero and Jack Gore playing the two sons reports TV Line.

The sitcom, which will air Thursday nights on NBC, has already been ordered for 22 episodes. Fox stars as Mike Burnaby, a father/husband who is coming out of a hiatus from news reporting to face the challenges of having a career with Parkinson’s disease.

"Michael came in and pitched us the show, and it's completely inspired by his life as a father and a husband and a family man who is grappling with his disease," Jennifer Salke, the NBC President of Entertainment, explained.

The sitcom will air in the fall and plans to take the place of hit comedies The Office and 30 Rock.
