Who's in it and where you've seen them: The revival of the Jeremy Piven show (which lasted for 15 episodes in 1998-99) has yet to cast couples or a lead.
Who's behind it: Rob Thomas, the creator of "Veronica Mars," is shepherding the project for ABC. Thomas is a triple threat this pilot season as he also preps his "90210" show for the CW and writes and executive produces an untitled pilot for ABC. The show is based on "Outrageous Fortune," a crime family dramedy from New Zealand.
Why you'll watch: "Veronica Mars" was beloved. If Thomas can infuse the series -- about a man who thinks he's a god sent to Earth by Zeus to unite 100 romantically challenged couples -- with a bit of smart comedy to go with the romance, it could be a success.
