Once in a while, you will hear an account about a couple of whom came across at a very early age, could not make it happen for just one reason or any other, then reunited years if not years later on and got their long-delayed happily ever after.
ABC’s remake associated with the short-lived group of the exact same title from a decade ago, has to be able to be among those tales, just i am perhaps perhaps maybe perhaps not yet certain that it will. Both incarnations of “Cupid” have the creator that is same
) while the exact same premise: successful specialist and relationship specialist Claire (Paula Marshall then,
now) is assigned up to a patient that is mental Trevor ( very very very first Jeremy Piven, now
) whom claims to function as the god that is greco-Roman of, banished to planet in individual kind until he is able to unite 100 partners with no assistance of their trusty bow and arrow.
The first was a crackling mixture of love, drama and banter that is witty most of it elevated by the superb chemistry (comic and otherwise) between Piven (never ever more likable) and Marshall (ditto), nevertheless the show ended up being condemned through the jump. The ABC of 1998-99 had been a system in decline (the after season, it might start airing “Who would like to Be a Millionaire?” five evenings per week as the development cabinet ended up being therefore bare) and would not have already been prepared to introduce a show like “Cupid,” even if it had not been planned in 2 suicidal time slots: very first on Saturday evenings (when a lot of its potential audience was away in search of genuine love), then opposite
the still-mighty “Frasier.” So that it ended up being canceled after 14 episodes aired, Piven proceeded to take a few Emmys for “Entourage,” Thomas created “Veronica Mars” and Marshall starred in a lot of other unsuccessful series that she needed to lawfully alter her center title to Showkiller.
