tracy morgan fxx comedy series on hold gi Tracy Morgan FXX show: On hold and 'waiting' after accident

Tracy Morgan’s upcoming FXX comedy series is officially on hold while the actor recovers from injuries he suffered in a bus crash on Saturday (June 7).

The untitled comedy had been scheduled to start production on its 10-episode Season 1 in August, and the cable network had planned a January 2015 premiere. “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” creators Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton were to executive produce along with Luvh Rakhe, Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum and Nick Frenkel.

Now, however, the timing is indefinite. FX Networks and FX Productions issued the following statement on Tuesday:

“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 currently in critical but stable condition at a New Jersey hospital. Two other passengers in his limo bus were also admitted in critical condition, while a third passenger — James McNair — died in the crash.
