Rob Thomas of 'Veronica Mars' revamps the 1998 Jeremy Piven-starring series 'Cupid' for a Spring-released show.
ABC have given their 1998 series "Cupid" another shot, and released its trailer. The dramedy show is coming from "Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas, and originally put Jeremy Piven as the titular character. But the remake that will air in midseason, is starring Bobby Cannavale and Sarah Paulson as Cupid and Dr. Claire Allen respectively.
"Cupid" is basically a modern love story where a man claims that he is a Cupid sent by Zeus to Earth after he shows arrogance. He is stripped off his godly power and in order to return to Mount Olympus, he has to match 100 couples with true love. Dr. Allen is assigned to analyze this man's thought which is considered as 'insane'.
Rob Thomas also created the original series that only run for only 15 episodes. But the remake has had its setting moved from Chicago to Los Angeles and "Veronica Mars" executive producer Dianne Ruggiero on board.
No premiere date has been set yet for the show.
