‘The Conners’ Crew Member Dies After ‘Fatal Medical Event’ On Set
ABC

A crew member on “The Conners” has died following a “fatal medical event” on set.

On Friday, law enforcement sources told TMZ that a technical staffer on the ABC show suffered a medical emergency while on a catwalk on the soundstage.

Though studio medics were called, they were unable to resuscitate the man. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Per insiders, the man was in his 50s or 60s. Sources also say the show was on its final day of production at CBS Studio Center.

A rep for production company Werner Entertainment confirmed the tragic news and said the man was a “beloved colleague” who had worked on “The Conners” and its predecessor “Roseanne” for the past three decades.

"With heavy hearts we regret to confirm that a member of our technical crew suffered a fatal medical event today," the spokesperson said.

"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 name of the deceased individual was not revealed.

“The Conners,” a spin-off of “Roseanne,” debuted in 2018. “Roseanne” was canceled that May after star Roseanne Barr tweeted a statement about former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett that many deemed racist.

Following a production delay caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, “The Conners” Season 3 premiered last October.
