(LATIMES) — Alex Trebek was in the hospital after suffering a mild heart attack Saturday, the producers of his long-running quiz show “Jeopardy!” said Sunday.

The 71-year-old game-show host was under observation and undergoing further testing at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A., Sony Pictures Television said in a statement.

“He is expected to fully recover and be back at ‘Jeopardy!’ when production begins taping in July for the new season, the show’s 29th,” producers said.
