Creative Arts Get FXX Network Exposure

Spike Jones, Jr. Returns To Produce The Show

The brand new FXX network will broadcast the 2013 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards, as the first telecast of a three-year deal with the Television Academy. Spike Jones, Jr. will produce the television event, his 19th year in that role.

"There have been a lot of changes in TV over the 19 years that I've been privileged to produce these awards," said Jones. "We've gone from Living Single to Walking Dead."

"The Creative Arts Awards and Spike Jones, Jr. have become somewhat synonymous and we couldn’t be happier to have him back as the producer of this year's awards," said Alan Perris, Consultant to the Television Academy’s Chairman, Bruce Rosenblum.

The 2013 awards will be taped on Sunday, September 15th to air on Saturday, September 21st at 9:00 PM ET/PT with an encore airing at 12:00 AM ET/PT.
