Today In Events: CNN and New York Times to Co-Host Next Democratic Debate, Procter & Gamble Will Buy 9,000 Tickets to Support Women’s Soccer, ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Chernobyl’ Win Big at Creative Arts Emmys

1. CNN AND NEW YORK TIMES TO CO-HOST NEXT DEMOCRATIC DEBATE: CNN and the New York Times will co-host the next Democratic presidential debate, which will be the fourth Democratic primary debate this election cycle. The event will take place October 15 at Otterbein University in Ohio and will be moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Erin Burnett and Marc Lacey of the Times. ABC News: “The October debate will be just over a month after ABC News hosted a debate in partnership with Univision Thursday night at Texas Southern University in Houston. … For the September debate, the D.N.C. said only 10 candidates could be on stage at once. Thursday, speaking to reporters in Texas ahead of the debate, D.N.C. Chairman Tom Perez said, ‘It’s the same criteria for October,’ but didn't specifically say whether this next debate would be one or two nights.”

2. PROCTER & GAMBLE WILL BUY 9,000 TICKETS TO SUPPORT WOMEN’S SOCCER: For the brand’s latest campaign, Procter & Gamble’s Secret deodorant will spend $200,000 to buy 9,000 tickets to National Women’s Soccer League games this fall, to support equal pay and opportunity in women’s soccer. The brand is buying 1,000 tickets at one home game for each of the league’s nine teams and will offer seats to women’s organizations, nonprofits, youth sports teams, and local partners. Advertising Age: “The brand will also give away Secret products, T-shirts, and spirit towels to the first thousand fans at one game in each city. The effort follows an ad Secret launched in March backing equal pay for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, close on the heels of the team filing a lawsuit demanding equal pay. The brand also made a $529,000 donation—$23,000 for each of the 23 women on the team—in July after it won the Women’s World Cup, and announced with effort with a full-page ad in the New York Times.” 

3. ‘GAME OF THRONES’ AND ‘CHERNOBYL’ WIN BIG AT CREATIVE ARTS EMMYS: HBO series Game of Thrones and Chernobyl took home 10 and seven Emmys, respectively, at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which took place Saturday and Sunday in Los Angeles. Nearly 100 categories—including numerous technical categories and guest acting—were presented at the ceremonies, ahead of the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards, which will air live from the Microsoft Theater September 22 on Fox. The New York Times: “On Sunday, Thrones, in its last go-round here, won awards in categories like best sound editing, casting, and visual effects. The show came in with a hot hand: It demolished an Emmys record this year with 32 nominations, the most for one show in a single year. … On Saturday, Norman Lear, 97, became the oldest person ever to win an Emmy. He received the award as an executive producer of ABC’s Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear’s ‘All in the Family’ and ‘The Jeffersons,’ which won the best live variety special award.”
