Emmys 2012: Don Mischer Brings Back Veteran Production Team for 64th Telecast
Producer Don Mischer is bringing back a veteran production team for the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards including Charlie Haykel as co-executive producer, Juliane Hare as producer and Danette Herman as co-producer.
Glenn Weiss will return to direct the telecast, and Steve Bass will serve as production designer.
“Each of these individuals brings the highest level of creativity and experience,” says Mischer, who made the announcement on Tuesday.
This is Haykel’s third year as part of the Emmys production team. He worked on the 61st and 62nd Emmy Awards, which were hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and Jimmy Fallon, respectively, but did not work on last year’s show. Most recently Haykel served as executive producer for Oscars Red Carpet Live, the official Academy Awards pre-show on ABC. His other credits include producing half time shows for Super Bowl’s 39 and 40; the 2011 Billboard Music Awards; and the Miss America Pageant in 2007, among many credits.
Hare has worked on five Emmy telecasts. She has also produced three Super Bowl halftime shows; the 2011 and 2012 Billboard Music Awards; the Oscars Red Carpet Live; the 2011-2012 Comedy Awards; and the Atlanta and Salt Lake City Olympic.
Herman is in her 23rd year as a member of the Emmy production team. She was most recently co-producer on the 62nd Emmy Awards. Her credits include the 34th Kennedy Center Honors; CNN Heroes; and Betty White’s 90th Birthday: A Tribute to America’s Golden Girl.
Weiss, who will direct the show, worked with Mischer on the Emmys in 2009 and 2010. His credits also include three Super Bowl halftime shows; Oscars Red Carpet Live; American Music Awards; and New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. He has won six Emmys.
Bass, the production designer, has worked with Mischer on the Emmys once before in 2001. He has also done work on the Oscars, the Grammys and the Tonys. His other credits include American Idol, Dr. Phil, Entertainment Tonight and Good Morning America.
The live telecast of the 64th Annual Emmy Awards takes place Sunday, Sept. 23 at 5 p.m. PST on ABC. Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the ceremony will be held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live.
