Cory Monteith to Get Primetime Emmy Tribute

Posted Tuesday July 30, 2013 11:55 PM GMT

It's always a tragedy when young talent is lost and Cory Monteith is no exception and he'll be remembered at this year's Primetime Emmy Awards.

Executive producer of the 2013 event, Ken Erlich, told Deadline that the ceremony will feature "something that reflects an homage," however, "what the extent of that is, or how we're going to approach it...well, it's too early to tell."

Sharing why things are still up in the air, he continued, "If Cory had passed away in March, we'd have had four months to look at this with a little more perspective. The reason we're getting all of this discussion now is because he passed away two weeks ago. But we are going to deal with it."
