NBC and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced today that producer/director Don Mischer will oversee this year’s Emmys, which takes place on August 29. Mischer also produced 2009’s Neil Patrick Harris-hosted event. “Don produced a Primetime Emmy telecast last year that hit it out of the park,” Academy chairman John Shaffner said in a press release. “We are very fortunate to be able to work with him again this year.”
