Ken Ehrlich, who has exec-produced the last four Emmy Awards ceremonies, gave a peek behind the curtain at what's in store for this year's telecast (Sunday, Sept. 21, 8 pm/ET, ABC). Taking a page from TV Land perhaps, the 60th anniversary of the awards will capitalize on nostalgia for the ol' boob tube, but filtered through the eyes of today's television stars, including a slew of newly minted reality-TV personalities. — Mickey O'ConnorFIVE HOSTS!

Doing the event from the new Nokia Theatre... 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."And while the Emmy Awards might seem like a long time away, the nominations are coming up July 17.

Idol Execs Give Back... Emmys Gig; Plus, Tour Details!

Apparently having exhausted themselves exhuming Elvis, American Idol bosses Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick have elected not to helm this year's Primetime Emmys. The ceremony's 59th edition will now be exec-produced by Ken Ehrlich, who has 27 Grammycasts and three Emmy shows (including last year's) under his belt. "After we wrapped the enormous effort of 'Idol Gives Back,' we looked at our upcoming slate of projects, including the American Idol finale and the additional shows we will be involved in this summer, and realized that we could not devote the creative energy and time necessary to make the Emmys outstanding for the Academy and Fox," Lythgoe and Warwick said in a statement. In other Idol news, the summer-tour schedule has been released, and the fun starts July 6 in Florida and concludes Sept. 22 in New Hampshah. Details at read more
