Don Mischer Productions and Done+Dusted will co-produce the 71st Emmy Awards, the Television Academy said today. The trophy show is set for Sunday, September 22, from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. It’s Fox’s year to air the ceremony.
“Television is in a period of unprecedented growth and has emerged as the world’s premier entertainment choice across a multitude of spectacular platforms,” said Frank Scherma, Chairman and CEO of the Television Academy. “As a consequence, the Emmy telecast has tremendous significance and should reflect the innovation and inventiveness that television embodies. Don Mischer Productions and Done+Dusted are the resources to help fuel that transformation.”
