After many bumps in the road, NBC finally got around to airing Love Bites, an anthology-style comedy that’s a bit reminiscent of Love, American Style. Unlike the latter, this one didn’t even last a full season. Love Bites has already been cancelled.
When NBC ordered the Love Bites in January 2010, it was supposed to revolve around two single women named Annie (Becki Newton) and Frannie (Jordana Spiro). Their friends had all gotten married so they were left to explore the ups and downs of the single life. Unfortunately, Spano was still committed to another series (TBS’ My Boys) and she had to bow out of the project after NBC gave a greenlight. As expected, TBS subsequently cancelled My Boys.
The show underwent further changes when Newton became pregnant since her character had been a virgin. Episodes of the comedy ended up revolving around a common theme or character and somehow related to Annie (Newton), Judd (Greg Grunberg) and Colleen (Constance Zimmer).
