"I am thrilled to be a part of this innovative move by the Academy and NBC to take viewers backstage live at the Primetime Emmys," said Neal. "There is so much spontaneous action taking place behind the curtain, which will make an ideal on-line companion to broadcast. I'm especially happy to be working with my longtime friend and mentor Don Mischer, who is quite simply the gold standard for live events on television."
