Charlie Haykel and Juliane Hare have been tapped as producers for the upcoming Emmy Awards.
Haykel will return to the Emmys after producing last year’s kudocast. He has a longstanding relationship with exec producer Don Mischer, who announced the appointments. The two worked together on such specials as “We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial” and two Super Bowl halftime shows.
This will be Hare’s sixth Emmy show — though not always as a producer — and she has teamed with Mischer on a handful of Olympics-related programming.
Danette Herman, who was named co-producer, is a longtime Emmy collaborator. This year will mark her 22nd show. Herman has worked on the Oscar broadcast for 34 years.
No director has been announced yet.
The Emmy Awards will be broadcast live Aug. 29 by NBC from the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Normally, the show takes place in September, but the Peacock’s Sunday schedule is filled that month with NFL broadcasts.
Nominations for the Emmys will be announced July 8.
