Emmy submissions: ABC Studios category placements for ‘American Crime,’ ‘Black-ish,’ ‘When We Rise’ and more [EXCLUSIVE]

In a Gold Derby exclusive, we have learned the category placements of the key Emmy Awards contenders for ABC Studios. The network has returning Best Comedy Series nominee “Black-ish” along with its leads Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross plus the third installment of “American Crime” starring Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, and two-time Emmy winner Regina King. Among its newcomers are limited series contender “When We Rise” starring Mary-Louise Parker and Guy Pearce, comedy series “American Housewife” with Katy Mixon, and “Designated Survivor” with lead Kiefer Sutherland.

Below, the list of ABC lead, supporting and guest submissions for drama and comedy series produced by ABC Studios, including some airing on other networks. In addition, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” looks to join the Best Variety Talk Series lineup again. Please note that many network programs like “Modern Family” and “The Middle” are not produced by ABC, so we will provide their category placements through their production studios. Also note that performers not included on this list may well be submitted by their personal reps.
