The 66th Annual Emmy Awards will pay tribute to the late, great Robin Williams.

The producers of the Emmys, which will air on Monday, August 25 this year, tell “TV Guide” that they are already planning to honor Williams, who got his start on “Mork and Mindy.”

"With the tragic loss of Robin, we're trying to deal with that and figure out what to do in the right, appropriate and meaningful way," producer Don Mischer told “TV Guide.” "It's about what can we do to properly remember Robin and create perhaps an emotional moment about Robin, knowing all that he did for all of us who love entertainment and love comedy."

Following “Mork,” Williams went on to star in diverse projects from “Mrs. Doubtfire” to “One Hour Photo” to “Aladdin.”

One of his final projects was “The Crazy Ones,” a David E. Kelley-produced sitcom that ran for one season on CBS.

Last year’s award ceremony had extended tributes to several deceased stars, including Cory Monteith and James Gandolfini.
