This Bites: Our Dreams of a Michael Urie Becki Newton UGLY BETTY Spin-Off Officially Quashed…


… But on the plus side, Michael Ausiello is reporting that Becki Newton, also known as one half of television’s most dynamic of dynamic duos has landed the starring role in NBC’s hour-long romantic comedy pilot LOVE BITES.

According to the scooptacular one himself, “the potential series, exec produced by SEX AND THE CITY’s Cindy Chupack, will follow three loosely connected stories of love, dating, and marriage each week. Newton will play Annie, an infectiously bubbly hopeless romantic who also happens to be a virgin.”

Congratulations Becki! R.I.P. BETTY.

    As disappointed as I am in Betty’s cancelation, it’s exciting to hear that so many of the show’s talented cast members are going to get quickly snapped up for future projects.
