"COUNTDOWN TO THE EMMYS(R)" TO KICK OFF LIVE COVERAGE OF THE "63RD PRIMETIME EMMY(R) AWARDS" SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, ON FOX

Official Live Pre-Show Hosted by Nancy O'Dell, Mark Thompson and Amanda Byram

FOX will kick off the biggest night on television with COUNTDOWN TO THE EMMYS, the official live pre-show hosted by Emmy(R) Award-winning entertainment reporter Nancy O'Dell, Emmy(R) Award-winning television reporter Mark Thompson and television personality Amanda Byram, on Sunday, Sept. 18 (7:00-8:00 PM ET live/PT 4:00-5:00 PM PT live) on FOX.

The live one-hour special will capture the star-studded arrivals of Primetime Emmy(R) nominees, presenters and special guests. O'Dell, Thompson and Byram will set the stage for the night's festivities as they interview the stars on the red carpet and get the inside scoop on the fashion, the nerves and the excitement.

The star-studded evening continues with the 63RD PRIMETIME EMMY(R) AWARDS, airing live in all time zones (8:00-11:00 PM ET live/5:00-8:00 PM PT live). Hosted by Jane Lynch and executive-produced by Mark Burnett, the Emmys will celebrate the year's best television programing.

Named one of Television Week's 10 Most Bankable Stars in Syndication, Nancy O'Dell has proven to be a force as a host, author, producer and entrepreneur. One of the country's most respected and leading entertainment journalists, O'Dell serves as co-host of "Entertainment Tonight." Previously, she co-anchored "Access Hollywood" for 13 years. An award-winning journalist, she has been honored with three Associated Press Awards, two Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) Awards, an Emmy(R) Award and multiple Emmys nominations.

Emmy(R) Award-winner Mark Thompson is a familiar face to FOX audiences. Thompson hosted three seasons of FOX's "Guinness World Records Primetime" and "Hole in the Wall," as well as numerous live events, including New Year's Eve shows and Kaptain Robbie Knieval jumps. His earliest work on the network goes back to the days of launching reality franchises such as "When Good Pets Go Bad" and "Busted on the Job." His voice has also been heard on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, AMERICAN IDOL and other popular primetime shows. Thompson recently concluded twenty years at the FOX owned-and-operated station in Los Angeles where he appeared nightly on the top-rated newscast and hosted the show, "That's So Hollywood."

Amanda Byram is one of Ireland's biggest exports, and began her career as a model at 16. Her credits include "Ireland AM" with Mark Cagney, "The Big Breakfast," and the U.K. version of "Entertainment Tonight." In the U.S., she is best known as the host of "Paradise Hotel" and "The Swan." Byram is currently serving as host to the U.K. version of "Wipeout," which was voted Best Gameshow at the 2010 TV Choice Awards.

COUNTDOWN TO THE EMMYS will be executive-produced by Brad Lachman, and Bill Bracken will serve as producer.
