D+D Back to Produce 2021 Emmys on CBS with Reginald Hudlin, Hosted by Cedric the Entertainer
Done+Dusted and Hudlin Entertainment are returning for a consecutive year to produce the 73rd annual Emmy Awards. Reginald Hudlin and Ian Stewart, who executive produced the well received virtual 2020 Emmys on ABC, along with Hamish Hamilton, who directed it, are returning in the same roles this year. Cedric the Entertainer will host the show for the first time in front of a limited audience of nominees and their guests.
“We are honored that CBS and the Television Academy have given us the opportunity to produce our fourth Emmys running and, once again, celebrate television’s biggest night with a live audience,” said Stewart, who serves as president of Done+Dusted. “We are equally excited to ‘get the band back together,’ for the second time, with the mega-talented Reginald and his crew at Hudlin Entertainment.”
Said Hudlin: “Last year, the restrictions of Covid freed me and the awesome talents at Done+Dusted to do a show that was different than any other award show. We don’t plan on repeating ourselves, but we certainly want to try some new ideas that could only be done on the Emmys.”
The 73rd Emmy Awards airs live on Sunday, Sept. 19 on CBS, and will also stream live and on demand on Paramount Plus.
