Variety’s ‘Actors on Actors’ Special on PBS Wins Emmy

Variety’s “Actors on Actors” on PBS was awarded the Emmy for best entertainment programming at the Television Academy’s 67th Los Angeles area Emmy Awards.

“Actors on Actors,” which is an interview special that features pairings of prominent actors discussing their craft, was produced by PBS SoCal in partnership with Variety Media, LLC.

The winners were announced Saturday at the 67th Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards at The Skirball Cultural Center Guerin Pavilion in Herscher Hall.

“We couldn’t be more excited to receive this honor from the Academy,” said Variety co-editors-in-chief Claudia Eller and Andrew Wallenstein. “PBS SoCal was the perfect partner to showcase Variety’s dedication to in-depth coverage on the awards front.”

Other Emmy awards on Saturday night included honoring KCBS anchor Pat Harvey with the Governors Award in recognition of her long run in the Los Angeles market. KMEX was the biggest winner of the night with nine wins, including one for outstanding sports reporting and one for outstanding investigative news reporting. KVEA had seven honors, including one for outstanding news videographer.
