FX Says Tracy Morgan's Comedy Project 'Will Be Waiting for Him' B&C
After comedian Tracy Morgan was seriously injured in a six-car crash Saturday, FX said it plans to continue with its untitled comedy starring the actor and that the show “will be waiting for him,” B&C reports.
Morgan is expected to remain in the hospital for several weeks. He has been in critical but stable condition, the story notes.
"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,” said a statement from FX Networks and FX Productions. “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."
FXX ordered “The Untitled Tracy Morgan Project” in April, giving it 10 episodes. The project had been slated to start production in August for a January debut.
Comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair, who was a mentor to Morgan, was killed in the crash, as we reported previously.
