EW has learned that Becki Newton has an offer to star in at least one comedy pilot – which may finally signal the last gasp of her tortured NBC dramedy Love Bites.
NBC’s comedy-romance-anthology-thingy has seen its premiere date delayed twice and its order reduced from 13 to 9.
The cast has been told they’re free to go try out for other pilots, but NBC insiders still say Love Bites is not officially dead (this is a bit like telling your significant other that you’re not breaking up, but you’re now free to date other people).
The news comes after another Love Bites actor, Greg Grunberg, landed a role in a A&E’s pilot Big Mike a few days ago.
