TV out of the box

Exhibit opens at Paley Center for Media

Hollywood set its TiVo Thursday night and headed to the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills for the opening of the Warner Bros.’ “Television: Out of the Box.” The museum exhibit chronicles decades of TV and indulges in smallscreen nostalgia with expansive skein timelines, costume displays and even a life-size Lego Conan O’Brien.

Warner Bros.’ Barry Meyer described addressing the event’s starry and notable crowd as “unbelievably intimidating,” dubbing the exhibit opening “like an episode of ‘This Is Your Life.’ ”

The party bubbled with a live perf by Frenchie Davis while Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck made the rounds with the chatty guests. Amidst the cocktail-infused energy, Paley Center topper Pat Mitchell emphasized that all attendees, both young and old, have “personal memories that are so connected to these iconic television shows that formed our lives.”

The exhibit opening was indeed a walk down memory lane. Chuck Lorre reflected on some of his favorite skeins from the past, which include “Star Trek,” “Get Smart” and “I Love Lucy.”

When asked if the shows he loved had an impact on his own television-making, Lorre responded emphatically: “Unquestionably … ‘All in the Family,’ ‘Cheers’ … Definitely.”
