The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced Monday that Louis Horvitz, a three-time Emmy Award winner and 10-time nominee, will return for his 11th year as director of the Primetime Emmy Awards.

“Lou is so incredibly talented and experienced at directing live events, and he continues to bring fresh ideas to the table, that I have no doubt he will help make the 56th Annual Primetime Emmys a memorable evening,” said Don Mischer, executive producer of the telecast.

Horvitz recently completed his eighth year as director of “The 75th Annual Academy Awards” and his 13th year at the helm of “The People’s Choice Awards.” Mr. Horvitz’s other program credits include “The Kennedy Center Honors,” Lifetime’s “Achievement Awards: Women Changing the World,” VH1’s “Divas Duets” and “The 2003 MTV Movie Awards.”
