A 'Pushing Daisies' musical? Bryan Fuller hints that a play or film is coming
Canceled after two seasons in 2009, "Pushing Daisies" was critically acclaimed -- the show received 17 Emmy nominations (and won 7 of them) -- but unfortunately a little too odd for mainstream success. A movie or a stage musical might just be a better fit for this particular brand of candy-colored oddness.
"I've had conversations very recently with Barry Sonnenfeld about financing a film, and with Kristin Chenoweth and Warner Brothers about developing a stage musical," Fuller teased in an interview.
This isn't a new idea for Fuller, who has been casually dropping hints about a return for "Pushing Daisies" since 2012. "We're working on something that is definitely a 'Pushing Daisies' revival," the "Hannibal" creator told TVLine at the time. "And the idea would be to have as many cast [members] as we can to participate in it."
Could the sugar-coated romance and mystery return to Coeur de Coeur? Will Ned the pie-maker and a girl called Chuck ever find a way to touch without it ending in death?
Let's hope so.
