Sarah Paulson has been tapped as the female lead in ABC's one-hour pilot Cupid, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The ABC Studios-produced Cupid is an updated version of Rob Thomas' 1990s comedy for ABC. It centers on the manic Trevor Hale (Bobby Cannavale), who thinks he is the Roman god of love, Cupid.

Paulson will play Claire Allen, a psychiatrist specializing in affairs of the heart. Paula Marshall played the role in the original.
