"We are thrilled to be able to produce this Emmy show which will help celebrate the Television Academy's 60th Anniversary, and have a number of surprises in work that will certainly make this a memorable Emmy broadcast. Doing the event from the new Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live provides an opportunity to give the show a new and fresh look, and we are already hard at work with our designers to accomplish that and more," added Ehrlich.

Ehrlich, who most recently executive-produced "The 50th Annual Grammy Awards," is one of the industry's most accomplished producers of specials, concerts and notable live events. He has produced 28 Grammy Award telecasts, created and produced the "MTV Movie Awards" and the "DIVAS" series of music specials.
