TV Land Emmy submissions: ‘Younger,’ ‘Jim Gaffigan’ & ‘Teachers’ category placements

In a Gold Derby exclusive, we have learned the category placements of the key Emmy Awards contenders for TV Land. The network rose to prominence for rebroadcasting classic shows, but its forays into original programming have also proved successful.

“Hot in Cleveland” earned a Best Comedy Supporting Actress bid for Betty White in 2011 and won Best Art Direction the same year. The network’s “The Exes” and “Retired at 35” also earned Creative Arts nominations.

This year, the network is pushing its critically admired laffers for consideration: “Younger,” starring Sutton Foster as a 40-year-old woman masquerading as a millennial to advance her career; “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” in which Gaffigan plays a comedian juggling his stand-up career with his family; and “Teachers,” based on a web series about elementary school teachers.
