Live in Front of a Studio Audience is making waves. Deadline reports the ABC TV show special has earned two Emmy nominations.
The special, which debuted in May, featured live recreations of All in the Family and The Jeffersons with a celebrity cast that included Wanda Sykes, Anthony Anderson, Ike Barinholtz, Ellie Kemper, Jovan Adepo and Woody Harrelson.
Live in Front of a Studio Audience garnered two Emmy noms, for Outstanding Variety Special (Live) and Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special, making executive producer Norman Lear the oldest person to be nominated at age 96.
My friend Carl Reiner — we kind of grew up together in the industry and the world — was nominated last year. At the time, he was proud to be the oldest guy with an Emmy nomination. I think I may beat him this year! I’m getting a big kick out of that.”
Later, Lear revealed there are plans for more episodes of ABC special:
There is more than one — several if not many.”
