MGM makes ‘Limits’ a double celebration

101 reasons to party

At Tuesday night’s “Outer Limits” 100th seg bash, there were 101 reasons for the show’s producers, MGM and Showtime execs and members of the Bridges clan to party at Santa Monica’s Museum of Flying.

MGM TV prexy John Symes used the occasion to unveil the endowment of a $25,000 scholarship at UCLA in honor of Lloyd Bridges, who died last year at age 85. The late actor had starred with son Beau and grandson Dylan in the premiere seg of the revived “Outer” anthology series in 1995, but his ties to the Lion’s TV arm date back to “Sea Hunt” era of 1957-61.

Fund will award $5,000 scholarships to students at UCLA’s School of Theater Film & Television over the next five years.
