Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus is set to be inducted into The Television Academy Hall of Fame.

The “Seinfeld” star, who scored a Golden Globes nomination last week for her role in TV comedy Veep, will be feted on 11 March, 2014 at the Beverly Wilshire hotel in California, alongside writer/producer David E. Kelley, U.S. late night host Jay Leno, media mogul Rupert Murdoch, ABC Network executive Brandon Stoddard and American sound pioneer Ray Dolby, who will be inducted posthumously.

Bruce Rosenblum, The Television Academy’s Chairman and CEO, says, “The six individuals being inducted into the Hall of Fame have all made a profound impact on the landscape of television, leaving their own mark within our industry and with audiences around the world.

“Their groundbreaking contributions will last for generations, making them true icons who could not be more deserving of the Television Academy’s highest honor.”

Past inductees include Ron Howard, Candice Bergen and William Shatner.
