Kicking off the countdown phase of Variety Road to the Emmys preview coverage, the focus goes to the guest stars, and in particular the relationship between the theater world and TV, as well as the shows that seem to attract the biggest names.

"Brooke Kennedy, our executive producer in New York, and the production team have made really great efforts to accommodate people with difficult theater schedules," Michelle King told Paula Hendrickson for Variety. "When actors are so tremendous, sometimes one has to work a little harder to make sure they can be on the show, and production has been fantastic about that."

In addition, Variety breaks down the nominees for the comedy and drama guest star kudos.
