Hope, Pryor to head up aging sesh

Bob Hope, former Daily Variety editor Tom Pryor and producers George Schaeffer and Hal Kanter have joined an all-day conference on television and aging, “Age Has a Future: Maturity and the Media,” to be held Sept. 11 at UCLA.

Event is sponsored by UCLA in association with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Other sponsors of the event, designed to explore how aging is portrayed in the media, include the Caucus for Producers, Writers & Directors, the Screen Actors Guild, AFTRA, the Writers Guild of America West, the Producers Guild, Women in Film and the American Assn. of Retired Persons.

AARP’s exec director Horace Deets will be the keynote speaker, and CBS Entertainment prez Jeff Sagansky will be recognized for providing programming for older adults. Attorney Gloria Allred will moderate a panel on “Aging in the Television Industry.”

Hope, 90, will serve as honorary conference chairman and make opening remarks along with U.S. assistant secretary on aging Fernando Torres-Gil. The conference grew out of a UCLA survey of TV Academy members’ views on how the media deals with aging.
