Seven programs will receive honors at the fifth annual Television Academy Honors, to be hosted by Body of Proof star Dana Delany.

Taking place in May, this year's honorees include syndicated program Dr. Oz, Lifetime's Five, NBC's Harry's Law, TNT's Men of a Certain Age, FX's Rescue Me, HBO's Hot Coffee and PBS' Women, War & Peace.

All of the programs are being touted for creating "positive social change by focusing attention on importnat issues like personal health, breast cancer, sports-related head injuries, the civil justice system, 9/11 first responders and the role women play as peace builders and creators of international law in global hotspots."

“Television Academy Honors was started to celebrate excellent programming that not only entertains, but also presents a unique or significant look at the human condition and important social issues," said Television Cares Committee co-chair John Shaffner. “In our fifth year, it is so exciting to recognize a continued, diverse line-up of honorees that are using the medium of television for good."

Added co-chair Lynn Roth: “With each passing year, this event further establishes itself as an important night for our television community. Each of these programs is more than deserving of this honor, and we couldn’t be happier about welcoming Dana Delany back once again as the host for this event."

The ceremony, to be produced by Phil Gurin, will take place at the Beverly Hills Hotel on May 2.
