Jimmy Kimmel, star and executive producer of the late-night ABC talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live," will host the 64th Primetime Emmy(R) Awards, broadcast live coast to coast, Sunday, September 23, 2012 exclusively on ABC.

"We are thrilled to have been asked to produce the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards," says Mischer. "We love television and look forward to working with the Television Academy and ABC in creating a show that is fast-paced, humorous, unpredictable and at times irreverent, but clearly celebratory of our incredible industry."

Jimmy Kimmel is the host and executive producer of the late-night talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live" for the ABC Television Network, which is currently in its tenth season. "JKL" is packed with hilarious comedy bits and features a diverse lineup of guests including celebrities, athletes, musicians, comedians and humorous human interest subjects.

Kimmel, who is also set to host the upcoming White House Correspondents Dinner in April, has previously hosted the American Music Awards and ESPY Awards. In addition, Kimmel co-hosted Comedy Central's "The Man Show," served for four seasons as on-air prognosticator for "Fox NFL Sunday," and co-hosted Comedy Central's long-running and popular game show, "Win Ben Stein's Money," for which he received an Emmy for Best Game Show Host.

Don Mischer is an internationally acclaimed producer and director of television and live events. He has been honored with 15 Emmy Awards, a record 10 Directors Guild of America Awards for Outstanding Directorial Achievement, 2 NAACP Image Awards, a Peabody Award for excellence in broadcasting, Europe's prestigious Golden Rose of Montreux, and is the recipient of the 2012 Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television from the Producers Guild of America.

As a producer/director, his credits range from "We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial," "The 84th Annual Academy Awards," "The Kennedy Center Honors" and the" 100th Anniversary of Carnegie Hall" to the Super Bowl Halftime Shows (Prince, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen), the Democratic National Convention, events celebrating Hong Kong's re-unification with China, and the Opening Ceremonies of both the Winter and Summer Olympic Games.

Mischer has also produced specials with Beyoncé, Bono, Jennifer Hudson, Rihanna, Britney Spears, James Taylor, Taylor Swift, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Garth Brooks, Mary J. Blige, Elton John, Justin Timberlake, Barbra Streisand, The Black Eyed Peas and Carrie Underwood, among others.

He has received the Governors Award from the National Association of Choreographers and is a member of the Event Industry Hall of Fame, the Producers Guild of America, the Directors Guild of America and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, where he has served two terms as Governor.
