Viki, Variety Launch Inaugural Global TV Awards

Viki, a fan-generated TV site, and Variety will be launching the inaugural Global TV Awards.

The awards show — the first of its kind to celebrate global TV and film as recognized by fans from more than 200 countries — will be hosted by “Fresh Off the Boat” star Randall Park on September 12 at Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre.

The announcement was first made onstage Tuesday at Variety’s annual “Tune In: TV Summit.”

“We started ‘Tune In’ so that leaders in our industry can get together to discuss, learn and explore the future of entertainment; the Global TV Awards is an extension of this mission, and we’re excited to be a part of its inception,” said Variety‘s executive editor Steven Gaydos.

The Global TV Awards will stream on Viki and partner sites.

“We’re incredibly excited about the Global TV Awards, an unprecedented opportunity to celebrate with our passionate fans,” Viki CEO Tammy H. Nam said. “Variety is the No. 1 authority in what’s newsworthy and relevant in the entertainment industry, and we’re honored to be partnering with them for this event.”
