Theatre lovers who were shocked by the sudden cancellation of TV's quirky "Pushing Daisies" in 2009 may get the last laugh -- and a taste for dancing pies.
At Comic-Con, "Pushing Daisies" creator Bryan Fuller alluded to a reunion of the TV's show's cast in a "revival" type of production that may in fact take the Broadway stage. From 2007 to 2009, "Pushing Daisies" was an odd show that featured the occasional musical number. Tony Award-winning Best Featured Actress Kristin Chenoweth won an Emmy Award for her work on "Pushing Daisies."
The basic plotline of this "forensic fairy tale" surrounds "Ned," a pie-maker, who can revive dead things with just the touch of his hands. He is enlisted by private investigator "Emerson Cod" to assist in solving murder cases. "Ned" even works his magic on his childhood crush, "Chuck." Sad irony arises because he can never touch her again or she will be dead for good.
The TV show was nominated for 17 Emmy Awards, winning seven.
Getting the majority of the cast together will be quite a feat. The cast included Lee Pace of Broadway's Best Revival of a Play Tony-winner The Normal Heart, Anna Friel, Chi McBride, Wicked's Kristin Chenoweth, Ellen Greene, and Swoosie Kurtz, with narration by Jim Dale.
Hopefully, more details will be announced soon.
