'Love Bites' Gets Air Date but May Not Have Season 2


'Love Bites' Gets Air Date but May Not Have Season 2


The romantic comedy series, which was scrapped from its 2010 premiere plan, is now scheduled to debut on NBC this summer.

"Love Bites" is not totally dead after all. The romantic comedy series was proposed to debut in September 2010 but plan was scrapped when there were production changes and star Becki Newton fell pregnant with her first child. NBC is now ready to air it as a summer program.

The first episode will air Thursday, June 2 at 10 P.M. for a nine-week summer run. Even though the series may garner decent ratings, it is most likely not returning for a second season. Newton's co-star Jordana Spiro had to pull out because of contractual issues with her TBS comedy "My Boys", which is actually canceled now, and showrunner Cindy Chupack has stepped down.

But the major problem is Newton's commitment to CBS' untitled Jeff and Jackie Filgos project which is poised for a fall premiere. Moreover, cast member Greg Grunberg is headlining A&E pilot "Big Mike" and Spiro has found a new job in ABC comedy pilot "Lost and Found".

"Love Bites" is a series about love, and all the crazy things it makes us do. Like pretending to be a virgin to get a guy interested. Or competing with your fiancee's favorite bedroom toy. Or actually being in the position to take advantage of the "celebrity exemption list," and join the mile high club at the same time.
