Don Mischer is returning to produce the Primetime Emmy Awards once again.

The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards will be Mischer’s 13th Emmy production. He’ll be joined on his team by Charlie Haykel and Juliane Hare.

Mischer has made a speciality of producing live events; his team has also produced the televised Obama inaugural celebration at the Lincoln Memorial, several Super Bowl halftime shows and the opening ceremonies of Summer and Winter Olympic Games.

The Emmys have been very good to Mischer, as a job and a reward: He’s also won 15 of them.

This year’s awards show will be aired on Fox on Sept. 20 with “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Andy Samberg hosting. The nominations will be announced July 16.
