Hollywood PlagueWatch: WBeesA concerned operative on the Warner Bros. lot blows the whistle on the latest swarm of "killer" bees to plague an industry stronghold:

You can add Warner Bros. to the list of studios under attack. Swarms of bees have been positively identified on the Burbank lot. The nucleus of the attack seems to be the patio of the Without a Trace production office where a hive has unassumingly nestled in a potted plant, unbeknownst to the office production assistants who are forced to eat outside. File this one under "paying dues."

We hope that this report moves someone at Warner Bros. to immediately eliminate the hive, before Jerry Bruckheimer TV's practice of covering its PAs in honey when casting them outside to dine turns from good-natured hazing ritual to an unspeakable tragedy that might result in costly production delays.
