Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jay Leno to Be Inducted Into TV Hall of Fame


The 'Veep' star and the 'Tonight Show' host are among six inductees to be honored at a March 2014 ceremony.

The Television Academy's Hall of Fame Selection Committee has revealed six people who will be inducted into the 23rd Hall of Fame. Announced by Television Academy Chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum, the inductees include four-time Emmy Award-winning actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus and late night legend Jay Leno.

The two, along with FOX Broadcasting Company founder Rupert Murdoch, prolific writer-producer David E. Kelley, iconic ABC Network executive Brandon Stoddard, and the late sound pioneer and innovator Ray Dolby, will be honored at the induction ceremony that will take place at the Beverly Wilshire (A Four Seasons Hotel) on March 11, 2014.

"The six individuals being inducted into the Hall of Fame have all made a profound impact on the landscape of television, leaving their own mark within our industry and with audiences around the world," says Rosenblum. "Their groundbreaking contributions will last for generations, making them true icons who could not be more deserving of the Television Academy's highest honor."

The 2014 honorees join more than 130 individuals previously inducted into the Hall of Fame since its inception in 1984. Previous honorees include Lucille Ball, Walt Disney, Bob Hope and Bill Cosby.
