Los Angeles, Mar 20 (PTI) A member of the technical crew of 'The Conners' has died after a 'fatal medical event' on the set of the show.

A spokesperson for the ABC series' production company, Werner Entertainment, said in a statement to Deadline that the incident happened on Thursday.

'With heavy hearts we regret to confirm that a member of our technical crew suffered a fatal medical event today (March 18). 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 company said in the statement.

The news of the crew member's death was initially reported by TMZ.

According to the outlet, the crew member was working on a catwalk when he fell. Medics were unable to resuscitate him.

'The Conners' is a spin-off show to classic 1980s sitcom 'Roseanne', starring comedian Roseanne Barr in the lead.

After running for nine seasons, the show was revived in 2018 with the original cast.

It became 'The Conners' a year later after Barr was booted from the show over her racist tweet. PTI RB SHD SHD
