Kristin Chenoweth appears in a promotional still for 'Good Christian Belles.'

Kristin Chenoweth has been hospitalized after suffering a head injury on the set of "The Good Wife."

The 43-year-old actress and singer was filming a guest role on the Brooklyn set of the popular CBS crime drama when she was reportedly hit by a piece of lighting equipment.

"This afternoon, while filming a scene for The Good Wife in Brooklyn, a gust of wind blew a lighting silk out of place striking actress Kristin Chenoweth," CBS told OnTheRedCarpet.com on July 11. "She received treatment on the scene by the show's medic until a New York Fire Department emergency medical team arrived and transported her to the hospital. All of us at the studio and the show are thinking about Kristin and wishing her a quick recovery."

Chenoweth's publicist Jill Fritzo told the Associated Press that her client was hit by scaffolding, but the actress' condition was not immediately known.

A New York City Fire Department spokesman told the Associated Press that a woman suffered minor injuries at that location but the spokesman wouldn't identify her.

Chenoweth is a country singer and Broadway star who originated the role of Glinda in the musical "Wicked" and won a Tony for playing Sally Brown in the show "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

Chenoweth recently starred on the ABC comedy series, "GCB," which was cancelled after two months on-air, sparking a huge outcry from fans. Chenoweth also appeared on shows such as "Glee" and "Pushing Daisies."

Update on Thursday, July 12: Kristin Chenoweth has been released from the hospital.
