E! Entertainment Television to Offer Fans a New Look and Unprecedented Coverage of 2005 Primetime Emmy(R) Awards

Star Jones Reynolds Returns for the Second Year to Host 'Live From the Red Carpet(C)' on Sunday, September 18th From 6:00-8:00pm ET/PT

'E! News' Anchor Giuliana Depandi, 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' Carson Kressley and Comedian Kathy Griffin to Report From Strategic Locations Throughout the Red Carpet

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 8 -- E! Entertainment Television is unveiling exciting new changes in its coverage of the Primetime Emmy(R) Awards this year, it was announced today by Ted Harbert, President & CEO, E! Networks. The Network will have 17 live cameras to capture all the action; including aerial coverage and E!'s exclusive fashion camera right alongside the still photographers. Thanks to a new on-screen look, viewers won't miss a thing with simultaneous coverage of interviews, fashion, arriving celebrities and more.

For the second year, Star Jones Reynolds will host "Live From The Red Carpet" on Sunday, September 18th, from 6:00PM-8:00PM ET (LIVE)/PT (Tape Delayed) from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Helping to cover it all is an expanded red carpet team: "E! News" anchor Giuliana DePandi, comedian Kathy Griffin and fashion guru Carson Kressley.

In addition, E! will be the first to get celebrity reaction with Star at the first live interview position on the red carpet, as well as any final thoughts with the last celebrity stop just outside the doors of the Shrine with Carson.

"We want to let the viewer experience all the sights and sounds as they unfold on the red carpet. This year's telecast will surpass all others, as we expand our coverage, adding new camera positions, new on-screen elements, and a talented team that includes host Star Jones Reynolds, Giuliana DePandi, Carson Kressley and Kathy Griffin, who will each provide their own truly unique perspective of the action as it happens," said Harbert. Adding, "You're gonna need a bigger TV."

"I am so excited to continue as the host of "Live From The Red Carpet" for the second year. This year's show will surprise and delight viewers as we capture intimate interviews with today's hottest stars, and in-depth access into the biggest night in television ... And you never know what will come from my team on the red carpet."

E! Networks is the ultimate Emmy(R) coverage destination for entertainment fans. Before E!'s main red carpet event, "E! News" reporters Patrick Stinson and Samantha Harris will be joined by E! Online's Kristin Veitch and Ted Casablanca on the two-hour "Countdown to the Red Carpet," premiering from 4:00 PM -6:00 PM ET (LIVE)/PT (Tape Delayed). The live show will take viewers behind-the-scenes for all of the preparation that goes into Awards night, as well as offering a first-look at the evening's fashion parade and interviews with early arriving celebrities. E!'s coverage continues with the two-hour "Live Post Show" special, premiering from 11:00 PM -1:00 AM ET (LIVE)/PT (Tape Delayed), which will take viewers back stage as the winners sit down in the one-on-one interview room, and later that evening as they step into the night's most exclusive parties.

The one-hour special, "Fashion Police," hosted by Kathy Griffin and Carson Kressley, will premiere the following day, Monday, September 19th, at 8:00 PM ET/PT.

On the Web, E! Online has Emmys(R) covered from all angles. As the A-listers make their arrival, the site posts their red carpet photos. Users can rate the star styles with the interactive Instant Fashion Police -- and see real-time results on E!'s Live from the Red Carpet. During the ceremony, know who's on top with a constantly updating Scorecard, and after the big event, get pics, clips, the Backstage Blog, a Best & Worst gallery and E!'s trademark Fashion Police critique. On September 22, E! Online's Party Girl launches her report from the night's best bashes, and Ted Casablanca's The Awful Truth spills the story behind the story -- as in, the details all the TV cameras didn't catch.

Co-host on ABC's "The View," Star Jones Reynolds first stepped onto the red carpet for E! last year, hosting the coverage for all of the entertainment industry's major award shows for the Network, including the 2004 Primetime Emmy(R) Awards and the 2005 Golden Globes(R), Screen Actors Guild(R), Grammys(R) and Academy Awards(R). A lawyer and former prosecutor, Jones is known to television viewers for her candor, confidence and uncanny ability to clarify muddy legal and social issues, as well as for her distinctive sense of style.

Giuliana DePandi joined E! as a news correspondent in 2002, covering a variety of stories and events for E! News. DePandi now serves as anchor for E! News, and covers the red carpet for the Network's signature Awards coverage, ranging from the Primetime Emmys(R), Golden Globes(R), Grammys(R), SAG(R) and Academy Awards(R), as well as movie premieres. Born in Naples, Italy, DePandi first realized her dreams of becoming a television journalist at age six after moving to Washington, D.C. with her family. Unable to afford a language tutor, she learned English by watching television before enrolling in the public school system.

Actress, stand-up comedian and self-described television maven, Kathy Griffin's razor sharp wit and comedic timing made her a great addition to E!'s award show coverage last year, where she covered the Golden Globes(R), Grammys(R) and the Academy Awards(R) for the Network. Her new reality series, "The D-List," is now airing on Bravo.

Fashion savant, actor (The Perfect Man) and NY Times-bestselling author Carson Kressley is one of the stars of the hit original series, "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," for which he picked up an Emmy(R) in 2004. His hilarious sense of humor and undeniable sartorial style has made him one of the most popular personalities on television today. His upcoming children's book Your Different And That's Super is due out this November.
