Default Gen-TV's Emmy Strategy 2017

Gen-TV Reveals Emmy Submissions:
---Network unveils stars and shows competing for Emmy

The 2017 Emmy Award nominations will be revealed in July and if Ross Chin and Alex Montez have their way, Gen-TV series and stars will be among the prestigious nominees. Speaking candidly to Entertainment Tonight on Thursday, Chin said "Seeing our shows win Emmy Awards is a big goal for me as President of Gen-TV." "I want Gen-TV to stand for quality and prestige." "I want Gen-TV to be associated with the very best of television."

Here is the full list of series and performers Gen-TV has submitted for consideration for Emmy nominations, broken down into categories:


Outstanding Comedy Series:

Threesome (Executive Producers: Will Calhoun, Michael Tollin)

Running In Circles (Executive Producers: Mary Allison Moore, David Adams Mills, Caryn Mandell)

Singles (Executive Producers: Keegan-Michael Key, Leigh-Anne Smith)

Mama Knows Best (Executive Producers: Yvette Lee Bowser, Addy Howard, and Patti Labelle)

Every Other Weekend (Executive Producers: Emily Kapnek, Michael Fresco)

Peretti Rules (Executive Producers: Chelsea Peretti, Jordan Peele and Amy Paradias)

Among the surprise omissions from this list: Gen-TV has opted not to submit the final season of "I Said So" or to submit "Nicki J's World". Also shocking, the inclusion of "Singles" here, when the network canceled that show for "creative problems." "Outside The Lines" also was not submitted in this category.

Outstanding Drama Series:

Law & Order: Hate Crimes (Executive Producers: Dick Wolf, Carol Mendelson, Jonathan Littman)

Law & Order: New York City (Executive Producers: Dick Wolf, Neal Baer and Erica Mancini.)

Deadly Visions (Executive Producers: Stephen Spielberg, Glenn Gordon Carron and Tiffany Jarrod-Abraham)

Love Affair (Executive Producers: Neal Marlens, Carol Black, Kate Walsh)

Trauma Center (Executive Producers: David Aaman, Christy Leigh McPherson)

The Crusader (Executive Producer: Joss Whedon)

The big omissions from this list are District Attorney and Boston Homicide. The biggest surprise inclusion is the extremely poorly received Law & Order: Immigration. A show Ross Chin once called "an embarrassment all the way."
