They are compatible in every way until Hallie discovers that Clint is a Republican, and she breaks off their promising romance.

Meanwhile, Claire’s free-spirited mother, Liv (Julie Hagerty, Confessions Of A Shopaholic), a woman with a lust for love like Trevor’s, moves in with Claire after another break-up with her latest boyfriend.

In the premiere of Cupid, TV2’s brand new comedy drama, Trevor Pierce thinks he’s the Roman God of love – but is he just deluded?

Trevor (Bobby Cannavale, Third Watch), has just been released from a mental institution, and comes under the care of psychiatrist and self-help author Dr Claire McCrae (Sarah Paulson, Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip). Claire is also dedicated to helping the romantically challenged find their soul mates, but their approaches to matchmaking often clash – when it comes to true love, Claire believes it’s all about friendship and compatibility, but for Trevor, heat and passion conquer all.

Bobby Cannavale, who plays Trevor, tells TV Guide USA that he was attracted to the part by his character’s effervescent personality.

“I like that I’m playing a God or a crazy person – those are two fun things to play. They are both limitless to me. So, every day I come into work, and I can do anything. That is my favourite thing about playing the part.”

The show is reliant on the on-screen chemistry between Cannavale and his co-star, Sarah Paulson, who reveals that her sceptically-minded character is battling an underlying attraction to Trevor.

“I think she’s constantly fighting the fact that she does find him completely charming – he’s hard to resist, and it’s frustrating for her that everyone marches behind him and believes what he thinks. He’s more fun [than her].”

However, even though Claire is a cynic, Paulson believes she has a softer core. “I think she’s a hopeless romantic who forces herself to see things in a more pragmatic way to survive. I think a lot of people do that.”

Trevor wastes no time in going about Cupid’s business, convinced that he has to match 100 couples before he can return to Mount Olympus, and anxious to get the ball rolling – but Claire, who believes that love at first sight is a myth, doesn’t hold out much hope for a happy ending. Could Trevor Pierce really be Cupid?
