L.A.-based Canadian writer-producer Paul Mather has joined the writer’s room of Michael J. Fox’s upcoming half-hour comedy The Henrys.

Mather will serve as supervising producer on the single-cam, 22-episode series, inspired by Fox’s real life experiences.

Fox will star as a husband and father of three who faces many challenges, including Parkinson’s disease.

Betsy Brandt, Wendell Pierce, Katie Finneran, Conor Romero, Jack Gore and Ana Nogueira also star in the series.

Fox is exec producing The Henrys, alongside Sam Laybourne, who is writer and exec producer. Will Gluck is also on board as director and exec producer, while Richard Schwartz is co-exec producer.

The series is produced by Sony Television and California-based Olive Bridge Entertainment.

Mather earlier this year announced that he was in development on a pilot for CBS Studios with the Tannenbaum Company. Previously, he was supervising producer on CBS Studios’ Friend Me. His Canadian credits include Corner Gas, The Rick Mercer Report, Little Mosque on the Prairie and Dan for Mayor.

He is repped by ICM and Meridian Artists.
