'The Conners' Crew Member Dies On Set After Medical Emergency

The cast and crew of The Conners are in mourning after a crew member passed away on the set on Friday (March 19).

TMZ first reported that the crew member had been on a catwalk at the CBS Studio Center Thursday when he suffered a medical emergency that resulted in their death.

Studio paramedics were called but were unable to resuscitate him, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to a statement from Werner Entertainment, which produces the ABC sitcom, via People, confirmed the reports and paid tribute.

“With heavy hearts we regret to confirm that a member of our technical crew suffered a fatal medical event today,” the statement read. “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.”

The Conners, which stars Sara Gilbert, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman, Emma Kenney, Ames McNamara and Jayden Rey, returned for their third season in October amid the coronavirus pandemic.
