LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- The 60th annual Primetime Emmy Awards show in Los Angeles will feature many of today's biggest stars speaking some of TV's most memorable lines, ABC said.

The prize presentation is to air live on the network Sept. 21.

Some of the celebrities slated to speak the unforgettable catchphrases are Alec Baldwin, William Baldwin, Ricky Gervais, Kelsey Grammer, Heidi Klum, Denis Leary, Helen Mirren, Jeremy Piven, Doris Roberts, William Shatner, James Spader and Donald Trump.

"Celebrating the Academy's 60th birthday will be an important part of this year's Emmy show, but we wanted to do it in a way that tied several generations of television's past to the present," the show's executive producer, Ken Ehrlich, said in a statement. "By having many of television's brightest stars of today recall their favorite television lines, we've been able to have it all, and we think this will be one of the most fun segments of a very exciting and fresh Emmy show."
