A crew member of the sitcom The Conners died on set yesterday due to what CBS Studio Center is calling “a fatal medical emergency”. The crew member, whose name has not been disclosed, also worked on the long-running hit series Roseanne.
According to TMC, the man was in his 50s or 60s and primarily worked on the lighting for The Conners. Spokesperson for the production company, Carsey-Werner, said in a statement:
“With heavy hearts we regret to confirm that a member of our technical crew suffered a fatal medical event today...He was a much loved member of ‘The Conners’ and ‘Roseanne’ families for over 25 years. As we remember our beloved colleague, we ask that you respect the privacy of his family and loved ones as they begin their grieving process.”
Our hearts go out to the crew member, his family, and friends during this difficult time.
