The Television Academy will be accommodating its “partners” — networks, streamers, etc. — whose Emmy campaign plans are being impacted by the writers strike that was announced Monday evening, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
These partners have already drawn, via a lottery, dates for TV Academy-sanctioned FYC events, which they are then contracted to carry out. Under normal circumstances, they would face a financial penalty if such an event fell apart and needed to be canceled.
The leadership of the TV Academy, however, has decided to modify its guidelines on cancellations and fee refunds in light of the current circumstances.
In a notification that will be sent at noon PST, the TV Academy will offer its partners three options for how to handle their already-scheduled FYC events: (1) proceed with a scheduled FYC event as planned and contracted; (2) proceed with an event with an adjusted panel or without a panel; (3) cancel the event without a penalty fee.
More to come.
