NBC has set a premiere date of June 2 for its new romantic comedy Love Bites. A nine episode run is expected, after its original order of 13 was cut back late last year.

Announced in early 2010, the series has been sitting on the shelf for quite some time - long enough, in fact, that its stars have since been cast in other pilots. Becki Newton has been tapped for an untitled CBS project, while Greg Grunberg will take the lead in a pilot called Big Mike on A&E.

Look for Love Bites' first of nine hour-long episodes on June 2 at 10:00pm ET/PT on NBC.
