"65th EMMY(R) AWARDS" TO HONOR 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF 1963 TELEVISION MILESTONES

Special Tribute To Feature Don Cheadle And A Performance By Carrie Underwood

NoHo Arts District, Calif. - Sept. 18, 2013 - The 65TH EMMY(R) AWARDS will pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of two events that changed the face of our world during the live telecast on Sunday, Sept. 22, (8:00 PM, ET / 5:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Six-time Emmy nominee Don Cheadle will present a moving tribute to television's role in the assassination coverage of President John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963, and then connect that event to the performance of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show merely 80 days later on Feb. 9, 1964. Both of these historic events are often mentioned together as two of the most significant television moments in history, and the segment on the Emmy telecast will explore the tie between them.

Following Cheadle's presentation, six-time Grammy(R) Award-winning artist Carrie Underwood will honor the music of the era with a special performance.

"To have an opportunity to look back at a time that represented television's finest hour in a program that celebrates so many of this year's achievements is what makes the Emmys special," said Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich. "We are certain that viewers will enjoy this special tribute."

In addition to the previously mentioned events, 1963 marked the first year that more people got their news from television than from newspapers. It was at this time that network newscasts were expanded from fifteen minutes to a half hour, and the FCC approved the use of the remote control for home viewing.

The 65TH EMMY AWARDS are executive produced by Ken Ehrlich. Neil Patrick Harris is both host and producer, and the telecast is directed by Louis J. Horvitz for AEG Ehrlich Ventures, LLC in association with the Television Academy. If you plan to Tweet this story, please use #Emmys and mention the official Emmys Twitter handle @primetimeemmys.
