Pushing Daisies: Chenoweth Talks About the TV Show's Ending, the Movie, and Olive's Future Life

16 December 2008 6:23 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

ABC's quirky drama, Pushing Daisies, certainly has a lot of colorful characters. One of the most unique is waitress Olive Snook (Kristin Chenoweth) who has a crush on her pie-making employer. With the show coming to an end, more than a few have been wondering what might have been, including Chenoweth.

Pushing Daisies showcases the talents of performers like Lee Pace, Anna Friel, Chi McBride, Jim Dale, Ellen Greene, Swoosie Kurtz, Field Cate, Sean Lake, Sy Richardson, and Chenoweth. The fantasy TV show debuted on October 3, 2007 on ABC. Despite sagging ratings in season one, the network renewed Daisies for a second year. The size of the audience didn't improve and ABC recently decided to pull the plug after 22 total episodes. Viewers will get some closure if/when the final episode airs.

The series' creator, Bryan Fuller, has expressed interest in continuing the show in movie and comic book form. Those »

Pushing Daisies: Viewers to Get Closure in Last Episode After All

10 December 2008 9:10 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though writers on ABC's Pushing Daisies TV show knew in advance that the fantasy show would likely end after its current season, the producers opted to end the series on a cliffhanger. Now that the axe has officially fallen and the cast and crew have completed filming the last episode, it seems creator Bryan Fuller is having some second thoughts.

Pushing Daisies is a whimsical series that follows a piemaker (Lee Pace) who can bring people back to life, his previously-deceased girlfriend (Anna Friel), his detective partner (Chi McBride), and waitress (Kristin Chenoweth). The colorful show also features the talents of Jim Dale, Ellen Greene, Swoosie Kurtz, Field Cate, Sean Lake, and Sy Richardson.

The TV show returned for its second season on October 1st. The ratings had fallen in Daisies' year one and they continued that decline in season two. ABC had ordered 13 episodes for season two with the option to order additional installments. »

Pushing Daisies: ABC Cancels Beloved Fantasy TV Show

20 November 2008 6:44 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

To little surprise, ABC has decided to pass on ordering additional episodes of Pushing Daisies. After a critically-acclaimed and ratings-challenged run, will faithful viewers get some closure?

Pushing Daisies follows the story of an unusual pie-maker (Lee Pace) who can bring people back from the dead. With the help of his previously-deceased girlfriend (Anna Friel) and his detective partner (Chi McBride), the trio solve mysteries by briefly reanimating corpses and asking them questions. Other characters are played by Kristin Chenoweth, Swoosie Kurtz, Ellen Greene, and Jim Dale (the show's unseen narrator).

Daisies debuted in October 2007 and, though the ratings weren't good by the end of the first season, ABC renewed the show for a second year. The network execs hoped the show would catch on with a larger audience in season two. It didn't and has only averaged six million viewers each week. Last night's episode marked a series low in the ratings. »

'Pushing Daisies' May Conclude as a Comic Book

14 November 2008 2:19 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

TV Week is reporting what everyone has expected: ABC will not be ordering additional episodes of Pushing Daisies which looks to be buried after December. “Under one scenario making the rounds, ABC might find a way to extend the options on the Daisies cast and crew for several months so that the show could be revived next season. But such a plan would be costly,” the site wrote.

Production on the thirteenth and likely final episode for the second season wrapped Thursday. "If it's our last episode," Fuller said, "it's something we can all be proud of."

As a result, there will be just 22 episodes between the strike-shortened first season and the sophomore year.

Creator Bryan Fuller though, told the Sro crowd at the Paley Center for Media on Tuesday that he envisions continuing the story in comic books.

"The idea would be to finish out the season's story arcs »

Pushing Daisies: If the TV Show Is Cancelled, Bryan Fuller Has a Back-up Plan

12 November 2008 10:42 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though it seems almost certain that ABC won't be ordering any more episodes of Pushing Daisies, Bryan Fuller, the TV show's creator wants to assure fans that the colorful story isn't over yet.

Pushing Daisies tells the a pie-maker (Lee Pace) who can bring people back from the dead, his previously-deceased girlfriend (Anna Friel), his detective partner (Chi McBride), and a collection of other colorful characters played by Kristin Chenoweth, Swoosie Kurtz, Ellen Greene and Jim Dale (the show's unseen narrator).

Last night, at the Paley Center for Media, series creator Fuller, executive producer Peter Ocko, and most of the show's writers gathered to talk about Daisies. Those on hand included Gretchen J. Berg, Chad Creasey, Dara Creasey, Abby Gewanter, Jim Gray, Aaron Harberts, Lisa Joy, and Kath Lingenfelter. Quite naturally, the series' uncertain fate was front and center of everyone's mind.

Fuller said that there still hasn't been any »

Pushing Daisies: Essentially Cancelled or Is There a Still a Chance?

11 November 2008 9:30 AM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, Pushing Daisies became the critics' new darling TV show and was nominated for a dozen Emmys. Last Spring, the show was given a second chance at life. Will it receive a third?

Pushing Daisies tells the tale of Ned (Lee Pace), a pie-maker who's able to bring people back from the dead with his touch. However, if he touches the person a second time, they're dead for good -- a fact that keeps him from embracing his formerly-deceased sweetheart, Charlotte "Chuck" (Anna Friel). Because his baking work isn't very lucrative, Ned goes into business with a private-eye named Emerson Cod (Chi McBride) and they solve cases where only the deceased have the answers. Others series characters include Olive (Kristin Chenoweth), a waitress at Ned's bakery; Chuck's mother, Lily (Swoosie Kurtz); Chuck's bizarre Aunt Vivian (Ellen Greene); and the series' all-knowing narrator (Jim Dale).

'Pushing Daisies' Hits the Paley Festival

17 March 2008 6:43 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

The week-long Paley Festival in Los Angeles has long been hallowed ground for television fans.  Over the years, the casts and creative minds behind the most popular and beloved series on TV have been welcomed at the Paley Fest to talk about their show, screen episodes, and interact with the fans.  2008's Paley Fest kicked into high gear on Saturday, when the cast of Pushing Daisies, along with creator/mastermind Bryan Fuller, showed up to entertain the masses.  Unfortunately, we at BuddyTV were not in attendance, but thanks to TV Guide, we learned what went down on Saturday night in the Cinerama Dome. 

On hand for the festivities were creator Bryan Fuller, producers Peter Ocko, Dan Jinks, Bruce Cohen and cast members Lee Pace, Anna Friel, Kristin Chenoweth, Chi McBride, and Ellen Greene.

One of the main things I was really happy to hear about were Bryan Fuller's comments regarding the strike. »
