LIONEL RICHIE TO PERFORM MEDLEY OF HIS HITS PREMIERES SUNDAY, JUNE 15 AT 9 P.M. ET/PT

NEW YORK, June 2 -- TV Land has lined up an array of television, film and musical icons for the sixth annual "TV Land Awards." The network announced today that Steve Carell, Justin Timberlake, Robin Williams, Dick Van Dyke, Penny Marshall, Cindy Williams, Henry Winkler, Kathy Griffin, Jack Klugman, the cast of "The Office," "She's Got The Look's" Kim Alexis and Beverly Johnson and more are set to appear, and musical sensation Lionel Richie will take the stage for a musical performance. They join previously- announced honorees Mike Myers, Garry Marshall, the casts of "Roseanne" and "The Golden Girls" and Jonathan Winters. The show will tape on Sunday, June 8 at The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA and will premiere on TV Land on Sunday, June 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. M&M'S(R) Brand Chocolate Candies is the presenting sponsor of the annual celebration that recognizes television, music and motion picture's rich history.

The "TV Land Awards" is the network's annual salute to the best and brightest in the world of entertainment. This year, the show will feature reunions of some of the most memorable casts from TV, showcase an iconic musical performer and the always-popular television show parody, and for the first time ever, honor favorites in movies.

Honorees and presenters include:

Justin Timberlake will present The Legacy of Laughter Award to Mike Myers. This is presented to performers who are funny and then funny and then funny again. They create timeless comedy by mixing the strange and the familiar, bringing to life characters, stories and moments that are both comically absurd and, at some level, completely real.

Penny Marshall, Cindy Williams, Henry Winkler, Jack Klugman and Dick Van Dyke will present The Legend Award to Garry Marshall. This award is presented to an entertainer who has stood the test of time and ranks among the most memorable and celebrated in TV and movie history.

Robin Williams will present The Pioneer Award to Jonathan Winters. This is given to performers who have distinguished themselves by pushing back the frontiers of the media and bringing true originality to the world of entertainment.

The Innovator Award will be presented to the cast of "Roseanne." This award is presented to a series whose influence is still felt and is evident in television today; a show that carved out new territory, redefining elements of the genre and opening new pathways for others to follow.

The Pop Culture Award will be awarded to "The Golden Girls." This award is presented to a show that has crossed the line from television series to pop culture phenomenon.

Michael Levitt ("TV Land Awards," "Billboard Music Awards," "Producers Guild Awards") is executive producer, Emmy Award winning Jeff Margolis is director ("Academy Awards," "American Music Awards," "Screen Actors Guild Awards"), Greg Sills serves as supervising producer ("VH1 Rock Honors," "The Teen Choice Awards," "Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards") and TV Land's Sal Maniaci and Larry W. Jones are executive producers.
