- Ever wonder what a hybrid of "The Bachelor" and "The Voice" would look like? Well, this summer, FOX has the answer. "The Choice," hosted by Cat Deeley, features four celebrity bachelors in spinning chairs with their backs to their eligible bachelorettes. During round one, the men can only use the suitors' voices -- as they share information about themselves -- to make "The Choice." When a bachelor likes what he hears, he pulls his "love handle," bringing him face-to-face with his potential mate. It premieres June 7. [ FOX]

- FOX has also tweaked its summer schedule a little. "Hell's Kitchen" will now kick off Season 10 at 8 p.m. ET Monday, June 4, followed by "MasterChef" at 9 p.m. Both shows will air twice a week, on Mondays and Tuesdays. [ FOX]

- Lifetime has greenlit a biopic of country-music legend June Carter Cash, with singer Jewel set to play the lead role. Allison Anders ("Mi Vida Loca," "Southland") will direct the film, which also stars Matt Ross ("Big Love") as Johnny Cash. It will air later this year [ Lifetime]

- AMC has ordered a pair of pilots, both of which are concerned with murders but come at them from different angles. "Low Winter Sun," an adaptation of a British miniseries, follows a Detroit detective as he tries to cover up killing a fellow cop; Chris Mundy ("Criminal Minds") is writing and executive producing. The second, an untitled show from writer Richard LaGravenese ("The Ref," "The Fisher King") and director Tony Goldwyn ("Scandal"), is about a district attorney who decides to reopen a high-profile murder case.

- Los Angeles Lakers player Metta World Peace will sit for his first interview since being suspended for elbowing an opponent on Monday's (May 7) "Conan." [ TBS]
