TV series ‘will be waiting’

Morgan
Berry
Bergman

FX Networks says Tracy Morgan’s new series is waiting for him after he’s well but that his recovery is all that matters now.

Tuesday’s statement updates the status of the TV project planned for the comic who was critically injured in a highway crash Saturday in New Jersey.

Morgan’s recovery is expected to take weeks. The company says that whenever he decides he is ready to work, “his show will be waiting for him.”

His half-hour comedy was scheduled to start filming in August for a January premiere on the FXX network.

Settlement OK’d

A judge has approved a settlement between Halle Berry and her ex-boyfriend over child support payments for their 6-year-old daughter.

The agreement approved by Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon on May 30 calls for Berry to pay ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry $16,000 a month or nearly $200,000 a year to support their daughter. The Oscar-winning actress will also pay for their daughter’s tuition, but the former couple will split health care expenses.

The order also calls for Berry to pay her ex-boyfriend a retroactive payment of $115,000 and $300,000 to his attorneys to cover the costs of their custody dispute.

Berry and Aubry, a model, were involved in a custody dispute in 2012, and a judge blocked her from moving their daughter to France.

Berry has an 8-month-old son with her husband, Olivier Martinez.
