Frog bash jumps to hip beat

Twentysomethings, underage starlets party at White Lotus

HOLLYWOOD — The first broadcast network up at this summer’s Television Critics Assn. press tour, young web the WB took over hip new eatery/club White Lotus for its party Sunday night — setting a high hipness bar for the other nets to follow.

As the sun set on another scorching Los Angeles day, twentysomething WB thesps flirted with underage starlets (“Lizzie McGuire” star Hilary Duff, we’re looking at you) while TV critics and execs shouted to one another over a soundtrack.

Holding court were execs such as WB chairman-CEO Jamie Kellner, prexy Jed Petrick and Turner guy Garth Ancier, while entertainment prexy Jordan Levin showed off some sporty new specs to the delight of many a WB talent.

Scarfing down sushi and/or a spread of Asian fusion entrees were “Angel” star David Boreanaz and exec producer Joss Whedon; “7th Heaven” star Beverley Mitchell; exec-turned-producer Warren Littlefield; “Gilmore Girl” pal Keiko Agena; and the host of the self-titled “Jamie Kennedy Experiment.”

Also making certain girls swoon was “One Tree Hill” star Chad Michael Murray, as well as new “Tarzan” and TV Guide cover boy Travis Fimmel.
