NBCU shows all its entities the love

Rookie series stars mingle with cable and returning skeins

Mergers have certainly done nothing to shrink the size of NBCUniversal parties. The company’s Monday shindig at the Bazaar in Beverly Hills’ SLS Hotel — featuring talent and execs from traditional NBCU networks as well as newly enveloped Comcast entities — redefined “sprawling” as it extended across a massive swath of the first floor.

Whitney Cummings (“Whitney”) and Amber Heard (“The Playboy Club”) were among the many reps of NBC’s new primetime skeins, while Peter Krause and Lauren Graham (“Parenthood”), Nick Offerman (“Parks and Recreation”) and Danny Pudi (“Community”) heralded returning series. Giuliana Rancic (Style’s “Giuliana and Bill”) helped carry the banner for the Comcast-come-latelys.

Offerman, who plays the famously mustachioed Ron Swanson on “Parks,” appeared nearly clean-shaven because of a recent film role but said his facial hair would be back to Swansonesque condition in “three to four weeks.”

Not to be forgotten was the BBC America party July 28 on the rooftop of the appropriately chosen London West Hollywood. Idris Elba was among those who had a chance to gawk at the synchronized swimmers at the party’s centerpiece pool.
