- Executive producer Andy Tennant: “With our 12th season getting underway, we’ve never had so many compelling stories to tell. The goal is to find the best stories and tell them better than anyone else. This season the stories are all about that vision. It’s also about variety. There are hard-hitting investigations, superstar profiles and human interest features. That’s what makes E:60 a destination on Sunday mornings. There’s something for everyone.”
