Have we seen this before

This week my favorite network, CW, revealed their Sunday night shows. One in particular is Valentine, Inc., which will air at 8 p.m., is based on a feature spec script that Kevin Murphy is adapting for the smallscreen. Murphy helped create Reaper, the not -so-hot hell-like boy show.

Valentine, Inc. is high-concept romantic comedy centers on the premise that the Greek gods live among us, and that Aphrodite and son Eros are running a matchmaking business.

Wow, I've never heard of that before, wait...lets go back a few years.

1998-Cupid: This is the story of a man who claims to be Cupid sent to Earth as a punishment. To earn his place back on Mount Olympus, he must reunite a hundred couples without the use of magic. He has been stripped of his powers and has become a normal human being for the length of his stay among us. Because of his claims, Trevor is thought to be delusional and placed under psychology study.

A little different, but not really...I'm telling you, I feel like creativity is a rare gift these days.
