"His show will be waiting for him"...
Deadline reports that FX Networks and FX Productions have released a statement about the future of Tracy Morgan's new ten-episode FXX series. It was set to start production in August for a January premiere. FX productions is producing the series.
They wrote: "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."
Morgan is in critical but stable condition at the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Jersey. The car accident that injured Morgan early Saturday morning also killed his mentor and comedy writer James McNair.
The series for FXX was created by Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton (It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia) along with Sunny writer Luvh Rakhe. They will be the showrunners and executive producers with Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum, and Nick Frenkel. It came from a pilot called Death Pact that Morgan did for FX last year.
