LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Heather Locklear returns to TV this fall as the mayor's campaign manager on ``Spin City.''

``I already feel fortunate to work with the finest ensemble cast in television comedy,'' Michael J. Fox, the show's star and executive producer, said in a statement Thursday. ``With the addition of Heather, the best just got better. This is going to be a blast!''

Ms. Locklear, 37, will be introduced in the ABC sitcom's fall season opener. She previously starred on ``Melrose Place'' as the scheming vixen Amanda.

``Spin City'' will air Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
