Variety to host Emmy thesp panels

Chats in eight categories will air online in June

Variety will conduct a series of Emmy-centric interview panels moderated by its TV editors under the Variety Studio banner.

Actors and actresses in the lead and supporting categories for comedy and drama will gather May 30-31 at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood for the interview sessions. Among the three dozen thesps scheduled for the chats are Kaley Cuoco (“The Big Bang Theory”), Laura Dern (“Enlightened”), Walton Goggins (“Justified”), Joel McHale (“Community”), Jessica Pare (“Mad Men”) and Kiefer Sutherland (“Touch”).

The sessions will run online at Variety Emmy Central beginning June 11 and also have a print component.

Variety Studio has previously been a fixture at the Sundance and Toronto film festivals. Other Variety events tied to the Emmy campaign season in the near future include an invitation-only “A Night in the Writers’ Room” on June 12 at the Writers Guild of America Theater in Beverly Hills. —
