Pushing Daisies was a quirky comedy on ABC about a man (Lee Pace) who could reanimate the dead with a touch, but if they stayed alive for more than 60 seconds, someone who was alive would fall over dead. The show premiered in 2007 and took a long “hiatus” during the writers’ strike of 2008. The show came back a year later, but only true fans stayed with it and the show got cancelled on a cliffhanger.
Now, according to E! News, series creator Bryan Fuller is saying that the show might have a second life on Broadway or as a film.
”I would love to do a musical and make it all about Kristin Chenoweth and her character, Olive Snook; I think it would be incredible!” Although the idea of a Netflix revival was considered, Fuller says he prefers the idea of a movie “because you have higher impact and it also has an iconography.”
