Emerson’s Kevin Bright pays respect to TV legend
Fellow Emerson alums — and super successful TV producers — Kevin Bright and Norman Lear got together in Los Angeles this week. Lear, the creator of “All in the Family,” turns 91 Saturday, and Bright, the executive producer of “Friends,” stopped by to say hello. Bright was recently named founding director of Emerson’s new Los Angeles Center, which is located on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. It opens in January. . . . Imagine Dragons were out and about during their appearance in Boston. The band, which played at the Bank of America, did a MIX Lounge for a few lucky 104.1 listeners at the Emerald Lounge, and drummer Dan Platzman took some time to have lunch with his cousin Lisa Bagley a nurse at Boston Children’s Hospital, at Legal Test Kitchen. . . . Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees was around town before “The Package Tour” (featuring NKOTB and Boyz II Men) pulled into the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester Thursday. Timmons, his wife, Amanda, and several friends chowed at the Kowloon. He was also spied at Santoro’s Deli in Dedham. . . . Eva Agathis of Kidz Bop sang the national anthem before Thursday’s Sox game. Kidz Bop, which sings kid-friendly versions of Top 40 hits, is performing at Fenway Saturday after the Portland Sea Dogs-Harrisburg Senators game.
