After funnyman Tracy Morgan’s hospitalization over the weekend following a multi-vehicle car wreck in New Jersey, questions over the status of his upcoming projects have come to light — among them are his comedy series for FX’s upstart comedy network FXX.

This year, FXX placed a 10-episode order for the untitled Morgan project — a half-hour comedy from FX Productions starring Morgan and created by Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton (the trio behind and in front of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and Luvh Rakhe.

Production on the show was scheduled to begin in August and is set to debut in January on FXX. A statement from FX Networks and FX Productions indicates plans are now fluid pending Morgan’s recovery.

“The only thing we are concerned with is the health and recovery of Tracy Morgan and the victims of this tragic accident,” the statement read. “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 hospitalized early last Saturday after his chauffeured limousine, also carrying comedians Ardie Fuqua and Harris Stanton, was involved in a multi-vehicle accident along the New Jersey Turnpike. Another passenger, comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair, was killed on impact.

The “SNL” alum sustained a broken leg, a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs. He is expected to remain in the hospital for several weeks, his publicist Lewis Kay said Sunday.
