Producers Tapped for Expanded Oscar® Pre-Show
“Oscar’s Red Carpet Live” Extended to 90 Minutes
Beverly Hills, CA (January 11, 2011) — Charlie Haykel and Juliane Hare will executive produce the red carpet arrivals show “Oscar’s Red Carpet Live,” 83rd Academy Awards® telecast producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer announced today. This will be the pair’s first time producing the red carpet show.
“Oscar’s Red Carpet Live,” which has been extended from 30 to 90 minutes, will air on the ABC Television Network beginning at 4 p.m. PT/ 7 p.m. ET, immediately preceding the Oscar telecast. Cohen and Mischer also serve as executive producers for “Oscar’s Red Carpet Live.”
Haykel and Hare, who have long-standing associations with Mischer – 14 and 18 years respectively – are also serving as consulting producers for the 83rd Academy Awards telecast.
"We’re excited to be working on the pre-show, and it’s great that it's been extended to 90 minutes,” said Haykel and Hare. "In addition to having more time to talk to the biggest movie stars in the world, we'll be able to take the viewers behind the scenes before the biggest event in entertainment!"
Haykel recently produced the “62nd Primetime Emmy Awards” in association with Mischer, and the official kickoff to the Obama Inaugural, “We Are One,” for HBO. Also in collaboration with Mischer, he produced the halftime shows for Super Bowl XXXIX and XL and the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
Hare joined Don Mischer Productions in 1996. She has worked on the opening ceremonies for the Special Olympics in Shanghai, on several Emmy® telecasts, and on pre-game and halftime shows for Super Bowl XXXIX, XL and XLI. In 2009 Hare received a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Children’s Series for producing PBS’s “From the Top at Carnegie Hall.”
