Reelz to air creative arts Emmys

Jones to produce for 18th year

ReelzChannel has signed on to broadcast the creative arts portion of the primetime Emmy awards for the second year in a row.

Spike Jones, Jr. will also return to produce the kudocast, which will be taped Sept. 15 for air in a two-hour slot Sept. 22, the night before the Emmy main event.

Jones has also produced the creative arts awards themselves on 17 previous occasions.

“When I started producing this show, ‘The Walking Dead’ was anything they put on opposite ‘ER,'” Jones said. “Larry King was in Atlanta, Oprah was in Chicago and the cast of ‘Jersey Shore’ was in diapers. It’s an honor to be back for my 18th year.”

Honors presented at the creative arts Emmys include art direction, costume design, cinematography, casting, sound, guest acting and animation program.

“This night is all about the incredible artists whose work brings our industry to life,” said ReelzChannel CEO Stan E. Hubbard. They deserve to have their efforts recognized, showcased and celebrated and we’re proud to help make that possible.”
