Emmy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich says they are planning “Something that reflects an homage,” but adds, "“what the extent of that is, or how we’re going to approach it… well, it’s too early to tell." The show hosted by Neil Patrick Harris didn't have time to to plan a big send off says Ehrlich, “If Cory had passed away in March, we’d have had four months to look at this with a little more perspective,” he said. “The reason we’re getting all of this discussion now is because he passed away two weeks ago. But we are going to deal with it.”
The 65th Primetime Emmy® Awards will air on September 22, 2013.
