Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner

TV Academy Reaches Agreement with Major Networks; Mark Burnett To Produce

Emmy Statuette

The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences reached a $66 million deal with ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC that extends their TV contract through 2018.

Under the agreement, the four networks will continue to air the awards ceremony in a rotation, with Fox kicking off the cycle this year. The academy will get an increase in the license fee from the networks totaling about $8.25 million per ceremony. The previous deal, which expired this year, entitled the academy to $7.5 million.

The new eight-year deal also allows that, beginning in 2012, each year's designated network, along with the academy, can review the number of awards given and how they're presented. The move is an effort to shorten the telecast because of a recent decline in ratings.
