A crew member was injured on the set of Audience Network’s “Mr. Mercedes” late last week.
Details of the incident were not immediately available, but the producers of the show confirmed to TheWrap that the unidentified crew member is being treated for injuries and is expected to make a full recovery.
“A crew member was injured Friday, March 1, while working on season three of Mr. Mercedes in Summerville, SC,” a spokesperson for Sonar Entertainment said in a statement. “The crew member suffered burns to their hands and feet, is being treated for their injuries, and is expected to make a full recovery.”
Starring Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway, the Stephen King adaptation is produced by David E. Kelley, director Jack Bender, Jonathan Shapiro, Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey of Temple Hill Entertainment, Tom Lesinski and Jenna Santoianni of Sonar Entertainment, and Shane Elrod and Kate Regan of AT&T’s Audience Network.
AT&T renewed the drama for a 10-episode third season last November, with an eye toward a late 2019 premiere.
The company’s statement regarding Friday’s injury continued, “Safety of our cast and crew is our top priority and we wish our crew member a speedy recovery.”
