Sunday, Sept. 20 will be a good night for television fans and football fans alike when Fox NFL Sunday sets out to air live from the 67th Emmy Awards red carpet, the network announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association fall previews.
Half-time segments, wrap-ups and lead-ins will be shot live on the carpet outside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, while the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys face off just before the awards. "As a producer I'm just hoping that the game is really tight and goes down to the wire," Emmys executive producer Don Mischer told reporters.
"The Emmys are one of the most prestigious and anticipated television events of the year," said John Entz, president of production at Fox Sports, in a statement. "There's no doubt that we can kick off the excitement and pageantry by having Fox NFL Sunday live on the red carpet all day. We plan on speaking to many of the talented stars on the carpet who happen to be huge football fans."
The 67th Emmy Awards, hosted by Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Andy Samberg, will air Sept. 20 at 8/7c on Fox,
