Set to premiere later this week is NBC’s Love Bites, at long last. We have some details on the series, including the long list of guest stars, and some very amusing clips for you to check out.

Due to a number of factors, Love Bites, which was originally scheduled to air last fall, was pushed off until now. I was originally excited about the series, due in large part to the cast, which includes Ugly Betty’s Becki Newton, but with all of the delays, it’s hard to feel optimistic that this one will go anywhere beyond one season. Regardless, maybe it’ll be a great, lone season.

Below is NBC’s synopsis and further down are the clips, all of which are enjoyable but my favorite is the last one (featuring Greg Grunberg).

Love Bites is an hour-long romantic comedy anthology series featuring three, loosely- connected, modern stories of love, sex, marriage and dating. Each of the multiple vignettes will involve an array of talented guest stars every week and will illuminate the theme of love with a fresh, irreverent spin.

Anchoring the series and appearing in each episode are stars Becki Newton (Ugly Betty) as Annie Matopoulos, a single New York City girl looking for "Mr. Right Now," and Constance Zimmer (Entourage) and Greg Grunberg (Heroes) as Colleen and Judd Rouscher, a happily married Venice Beach couple.

Guest cast for the pilot episode includes Jennifer Love Hewitt (Ghost Whisperer), Craig Robinson (NBC’s The Office), Kyle Howard (My Boys), Steve Howey (Bride Wars), Lindsay Price (Eastwick), Larry Wilmore (The Daily Show), Guillermo Diaz (Mercy), Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad), David Giuntoli (Privileged), and Charlyne Yi (Knocked Up).

Emmy Award-winning producer-director, Marc Buckland (My Name Is Earl), directed the pilot and will serve as an executive producer. He is joined by executive producers Tracy Poust and Jon Kinnally, (Will & Grace, Ugly Betty), and Eric Fellner, Tim Bevan and Shelley McCrory of Working Title Television. Emmy Award-winning writer/producer Cindy Chupack, (Sex And The City), is the creator and will be a consulting producer on the series.

Love Bites premieres on Thursday, June 2nd at 10/9c on NBC.
