‘Idol’ Chiefs Pass Emmy Producing Baton

May 4, 2007  •  Post A Comment

“American Idol” producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick stepped away from their duties putting together the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards show set to air Sept. 16, citing busy schedules. Ken Erlich, who has produced three Emmys shows, will take their place.
Mr. Lythgoe and Mr. Warwick said the demands of producing “American Idol’s” finale and the show’s recent philanthropy drive left them without enough time to devote to the awards show.
Their decision leaves the show in the hands of Mr. Erlich, who has produced Grammy awards, concerts and series for VH1 and other networks.
“We respect Nigel and Ken’s decision and are fortunate that Ken Erlich has agreed to return,” Dick Askin, chairman and CEO of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, said in a statement Friday. “He did a terrific job with the Emmys last year, and we are glad to have him back.”

  1. What a relief to determine a page that can be present finally really worth reading! I’ve been looking for all-around regarding this matter except men and women just put trash posts, or brief worthless article. I have experienced a couple vids on youtube but it’s now the equivalent as reading a good article.
