Tracy Morgan only needs to worry about recovery now, not his FXX series. FX Networks and FX Productions issued a statement following the Saturday, June 8 car accident that sent Morgan to the hospital in critical condition.
"The only thing we are concerned with is the health and recovery of Tracy Morgan and the victims of this tragic accident," FX said in a statement. "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 was set to start work on his new 10-episode series in August. The untitled series hailed from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, and Luvh Rakhe. The show was scheduled to air with the new season of Always Sunny in January.
Morgan was on his way home for a comedy show in Delaware when his limo bus was hit by a tractor trailer and overturned in New Jersey. Comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair was killed in the six-vehicle crash that left Morgan in critical condition with several broken bones. In a statement, Morgan's rep said the actor's fiancée, Megan Wollover, has been by his side.
"The concern for his well-being has been overwhelming, but Megan is respectfully asking that the media await official word through these channels before speculating (mostly inaccurately) on his condition. Rumors about amputating his leg are completely fabricated," his rep said in a statement. "As we shared yesterday, Tracy had surgery on his broken leg. We are working closely with the incredible staff at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to share information when it is available. This recovery will be arduous and we hope that you can be patient during this difficult time."
The FXX series will be Morgan's return to scripted TV. He spent seven years on 30 Rock as Tracy Jordan opposite Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski. The show ended in early 2013.
