Kevin Bright, an executive producer behind the Emmy Award-winning television series Friends, has joined the board of directors at Gateway House of Peace in Ballston Spa.

Bright lives with his wife Claudia in Los Angeles and vacations at a summer home in Greenfield Center, where Claudia grew up. He has been a longtime supporter of Gateway, a nonprofit, donor-driven hospice organization that provides residence for terminally ill patients in need of a home during their final days. He decided to join the board, he says, because “Gateway’s mission that everyone deserves the right to die with dignity touched my heart.”

Bright got a chance to meet one of Gateway’s residents back in 2016 when his sister-in-law, who is also on the board of directors, introduced him to a 35-year-old cancer patient and Friends lover. “She was at peace and was very grateful for the way Gateway House was able to bring her home,” Bright said after the meeting.

Bright is also noted for his production of Cable ACE Award-winning series The History of White People in America and Dream on and the Emmy-winning series In Living Color. He has produced specials for Johnny Cash and David Copperfield, and HBO specials starring Robin Williams, Harry Shearer and Paul Shaffer. He is also vice president and founding director of Emerson College Los Angeles.

Gateway’s annual Thanks-for-Giving Gala on Nov. 2 at Longfellow’s Restaurant will be attended by Bright, and the public is welcome to attend. For more information about Gateway and the Thanks-for-Giving Gala, visit gatewayhouseofpeace.org.
