Cory Monteith 'Homage' Planned for Emmy Awards

Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Emmy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich has revealed that "something that reflects an homage" to late Glee star Cory Monteith is being planned for the Emmys ceremony in September. 

However, he adds that "what the extent of that is, or how we’re going to approach it…well, it’s too early to tell."

Ehrlich tells Deadline.com that he's been urged to do a larger tribute to the popular Glee star, and is considering a separate segment from the usual "In Memorium" portion of the show detailing those who have passed away.

Ehrlich explains, "If Cory had passed away in March, we'd have had four months to look at this with a little more perspective."  He adds, "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."

Monteith, who was 31, died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol in Vancouver.

The 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will air live on CBS from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on Sept. 22.
