US broadcaster CBS will air the Hollywood Film Awards, which honour filmmaking excellence, in November.
The live broadcast from the Hollywood Palladium on November 14 at 10pm ET/PT will mark the first time the event has made network TV schedules.
Dick Clark Productions is producing the event.
“We’re excited to schedule an expanded Friday night lineup to celebrate the kick-off of the annual awards season with the first live broadcast of the Hollywood Film Awards,” said Nina Tassler, chairman, CBS Entertainment.
“For almost two decades, the evening has been limited to industry insiders. Teaming with Dick Clark Productions and CBS News, we look forward to giving viewers across the country a front row seat to the entire night, from red carpet arrivals to honorees’ backstage reactions.”
“CBS is the perfect partner to embrace the Hollywood Film Awards’ 17-year legacy of honoring Hollywood cinema luminaries with an unprecedented night at the network,” said Carlos de Abreu, founder of the Hollywood Film Awards.
