Criminy, run and buy a lottery ticket, Rob!

On Thursday, just hours after news broke about the Veronica Mars creator possibly bringing Beverly Hills, 90210 back to life for the CW, ABC gave a green light to the pilot for Thomas' new version of Cupid, the romantic comedy he gave the tube back in the '90s.

Back then, Cupid starred Jeremy Piven as a man who believed it was his mission to help Zeus boost romantically challenged mortals. The update is being pegged as a "reinvention."

Because Cupid has been in development since the fall, the Reporter says, it is in "first position" - that is, Thomas' priority - should both the comedy and the CW's new- 0210 (if penned by him) get picked up.
