Tracy Morgan's Show Waiting For Him: FX Networks
As Tracy Morgan recovers from a car accident, FX Networks indicates that the show he was scheduled to make with FX Productions will proceed when the actor is up for returning to work.
Morgan suffered multiple injuries in a traffic accident in New Jersey on Saturday, when the limo he was traveling in flipped over after being rear-ended by a Wal-Mart truck.
FX Networks and FX Production issued the following statement: “The only thing we are concerned with is the health and recovery of Tracy Morgan and the victims of this tragic accident. We will support Tracy and his family in every way possible throughout his recovery. At the point when Tracy has recovered and decides that he is ready to go back to work, his show will be waiting for him. Right now our thoughts and prayers remain with Tracy, the other victims of the accident, and their families."
In April, FX ordered a 10-episode series from FX Productions with the former 30 Rock star working on the 30-minute comedy show created by Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton -- the executive producers/showrunners/stars of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Luvh Rakhe (writer Sunny, New Girl). The untitled series was scheduled to begin production in August and slated to debut in January on FXX.
Morgan has reportedly suffered a broken nose, leg and ribs. Morgan's comedy writer friend James "Jimmy Mack" McNair was killed in the crash, while his assistant Jeff Millea and fellow funnyman Ardie Fuqua were also hospitalized in critical condition.
