Fox talked to E!'s Ryan Seacrest about his return to network primetime television, as NBC recently secured his sitcom after a bidding war. On the red carpet, the actor said he was ready to get back to work because he didn't want to "just sit around and get fat and old." He credits Sam and his other children, 17-year old twins Aquinnah Kathleen and Schuyler Frances, and 10-year-old Esmé Annabelle with encouraging him to get back into acting, and borrows material from them for the upcoming show. The series will be set and filmed in New York, and executive producer Will Gluck told TV Guide, "He can steal [story ideas] from his kids, he's paid for them. He owns their intellectual property."
