Viki is proud to announce the first Global TV Awards! In association with Variety, this will be the first awards show of its kind—celebrating the world's greatest achievements in TV, film, and artistry as recognized by fans in more than 200 countries.
The event will take place on Saturday, September 12, at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The host for the evening will be actor Randall Park, who you may recognize from the critically-acclaimed ABC series "Fresh Off the Boat," and the blockbuster comedy movie "The Interview."
The launch was announced on stage during TUNE IN: Variety's TV Summit 2015, the popular annual event spotlighting what's new in the TV industry.
"Viki represents an exciting part of the future of digital entertainment: global content, highly engaged viewers, any device. Basically, no barriers," said Executive Editor Steven Gaydos, Variety. "We started TUNE IN so that leaders in our industry can get together to discuss, learn, and explore the future of entertainment; the Global TV Awards is an extension of this mission, and we're excited to be a part of its inception."
Tickets for the 2015 Global TV Awards will go on sale in July through Ticketmaster, so mark your calendars!
