Pushing Daisies is an American television comedy-drama created by Bryan Fuller that aired on ABC for two seasons. Touted as a "forensic fairy tale", Pushing Daisies centers around a pie-maker with the ability to bring the dead back to life with minor stipulations.[2] The final three episodes will air Saturdays at 10pm on ABC starting Saturday, May 30, 2009. [3]


[edit] Plot

Pushing Daisies centers on the life of Ned, a pie-maker gifted with the mysterious ability to bring dead things back to life by touching them. There are some conditions to this somewhat unusual talent. Ned quickly learns that if something is revived for more than exactly one minute, something of similar "life value" in the vicinity drops dead, as a form of balance. Additionally, if he touches the revived person or thing a second time, it falls dead again, this time permanently.

In the pilot episode, Ned discovers his gift as a child by resurrecting his Golden Retriever, Digby, after the dog is hit by a truck. He later brings back his mother when she dies of an aneurysm. However, in doing this, he accidentally causes the death of the father of his childhood sweetheart, Charlotte "Chuck" Charles, as the "price" of keeping his mother alive. Even worse, Ned's mother falls dead permanently when she gives him a good-night kiss (which is how he learns the effect of the second touch).

In their childhood, Ned and Chuck become separated after Chuck's agoraphobic aunts, Vivian and Lily, move in to take the role of her parents, while Ned is shipped off by his father to a lonely boarding school.

Inheriting his mother's baking talents, Ned becomes a pie-maker who owns a restaurant called "The Pie Hole", which he runs with the help of waitress Olive Snook (Kristin Chenoweth). The restaurant is failing financially when private investigator Emerson Cod accidentally discovers Ned's gift and offers him a proposal: Ned will bring murder victims back to life, inquire about the circumstances of their untimely death, then touch them once more, all before his set limit of sixty seconds is up. Emerson will then solve the case and they will split the reward money for solving the unanswered questions surrounding the death.

The scheme succeeds until they learn that Chuck, whom Ned hasn't seen since childhood, was murdered while on a cruise ship. When her body is shipped back home, Ned revives her, but can't bring himself to allow her to stay dead by touching her a second time. Against his better judgment, Ned allows her to live and the larcenous funeral home director falls dead in her place. Ned and Chuck fall in love again and he brings her home to live with him under the unique circumstances of their never being able to touch each other. Chuck is extraordinarily grateful upon receiving a second chance at life, and as such she starts to appreciate life as a truly precious resource and Ned, witnessing his vivacious beauty's happiness, begins to break out of his lonely shell. Other storylines include Emerson's search for his missing daughter, Olive Snook's love for Ned and friendship with Chuck, and Chuck's aunts trying desperately to get over their dead niece.

[edit] Production

[edit] Production history

The series was greenlit and given a 13-episode order by ABC on May 11, 2007.[7] On October 23, 2007, the show received a full season order.[8] However, scripts for only nine episodes were completed before the start of the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike.[9] Bryan Fuller reportedly made last-minute changes to the ninth episode to allow it to serve as a season finale, adjusting the episode to be a cliffhanger.[10]

Because of the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike, the show completed only nine episodes of a full 22-episode season.[11] Instead of attempting to complete the first season, the writers planned to start work on the second season with production restarting around March to June 2008. Although ABC picked Pushing Daisies up for the 2008–09 television season, when ratings quickly declined ABC opted not to order any additional episodes beyond the second season's initial thirteen.[12][13] By November 20, 2008, Fuller had confirmed that Pushing Daisies had been cancelled by ABC and expressed the possibility of wrapping up any lingering plotlines in a comic book or movie sequel.[14]

On July 17, 2008, Pushing Daisies was nominated for twelve Emmy awards, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Lee Pace), Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (Kristin Chenoweth), and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series (Bryan Fuller). It won three, for Outstanding Direction of a Comedy Series (Barry Sonnenfeld), Outstanding Original Score (Jim Dooley), and Outstanding Editing of a Comedy Series.

The last scheduled episode of the show aired on December 17, 2008, leaving three episodes unaired. But the final three episodes will make their debut at the 2009 Paley Fest.[15] ABC will reportedly air them in the summer of 2009 as a marathon.[16] According to Chenoweth, these episodes will not provide a narrative conclusion to the series.[17]

In India, the last episode aired on February 27, 2009 as a world premiere. In Germany, the television network ProSieben showed the last three episodes of Pushing Daisies on March 4, 2009 ("Window Dressed to Kill") and March 11, 2009 ("Water and Power", "Kerplunk"). The three remaining unaired episodes will also be broadcast in the UK as ITV1 has announced it will be showing the complete season during its run on the network.[18]

ABC is in negotiations to bring unaired episodes of Pushing Daisies to ABC.com without broadcast rights.[19][20][21] This now seems unlikely since all episodes were pulled from the web site.

On April 3, 2009, it was announced that the final three episodes would air on Saturdays at 10pm starting on May 30th. [22]

[edit] Visual design

Production Designer Michael Wylie told TV Guide that, "My goal was a storybook come to life. I wanted everything to look almost like an illustration." He achieved this by "concentrating on conflicting patterns in different colors, particularly reds and oranges, but per director Barry Sonnenfeld, virtually no blues."[23] Cinematographer Michael Weaver told Variety that he and the producers decided the visuals should "feel somewhere between Amélie and a Tim Burton film — something big, bright and bigger than life."[24]

Automobiles featured in the series are often mint-condition vintage vehicles, though some newer vehicles have been used (such as a mid-1990s Chevrolet Lumina APV minivan or a Hummer). Emerson drives a mid-1960s Lincoln Continental with suicide doors in like-new condition. Ned is also seen driving a very old, but like-new car, a Mercedes-Benz W108. Other characters drive decades-old vehicles as well. 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor cars in their ambulance and hearse configurations figure frequently in the series. Old-fashioned trolley cars are also seen in several shots panning in to the Pie Hole.

[edit] Quirkiness

The distinctive visual style of the show is complemented by noticeably quirky traits in the naming of characters and locations and also in plotlines themselves.

Many characters' names are alliterative, and some have duplicate (or near-duplicate) fore- and surnames: Deedee Duffield, Billy Balsam, Charles Charles, Charlotte "Chuck" Charles, John Joseph Jacobs, and so on. This doubling up of names is also apparent in many other things (i.e. Coeur d'Coeurs, Boutique Travel Travel Boutique, Darling Mermaid Darlings), and a theme of "pairs" is apparent in episodes' plots (a pair of monkey statuettes in the pilot episode, for instance).

The distinctive storybook-esque style is continued within the overall design of the visual aspects. Regardless of the fact that the show focuses on murder investigations, the morgue is still painted in candy-cane stripes and many of the outfits worn by the characters are vibrantly colored, bright, and cheery (for example, Olive's work uniform is a lime-green pinstriped dress, and Emerson is frequently seen wearing shades of purple).

CGI is very prominent in the series, with much use of blue screen technology (the shop window, similar set pieces and outdoor scenery outside often cast a blue halo tinge) and 3D set-extensions (streets, grass and landscape, the pie shop facade). It has been criticized that due to the lack of blue hues in the background replacements, a green screen would have fared slightly better for chroma key effects. It has mostly been given a "not-quite photo-realistic" look to emphasize the storybook surreality.

[edit] Music

The show contains original music composed and arranged by Jim Dooley.[25] The first six minutes of the series pilot, "Pie-lette" were composed by Blake Neely. Dooley describes the musical score as having an Amélie type of sound (Yann Tiersen), which is a "wide-angled," adult fairy tale, with a narrator and this super-real world."[25] It was recently announced on Dooley's web site that the soundtrack of the first season was originally going to be released by Varese Sarabande on October 21, 2008, then was pushed back to November 4, 2008, then was pushed back again to December 9, 2008, then again to December 16, 2008, and a fourth time to December 23, 2008. The reason for these delays is to clear negotiations with various record labels to use the songs in the show as well as with Sony Classical to use Kristin Chenoweth's voice on the album. As of December 10, 2008, the soundtrack is available on iTunes.

Both Kristin Chenoweth and Ellen Greene have backgrounds in musical theater, and have performed musical numbers in some episodes. In Dummy, Chenoweth sang "Hopelessly Devoted to You" from the movie musical Grease. In Pigeon, Chenoweth and Greene harmonized on the They Might Be Giants hit, "Birdhouse in Your Soul". Also in Smell of Success, Greene sang "Morning Has Broken". Chenoweth had requested to sing "Eternal Flame" in an episode, which Bryan Fuller had agreed to accommodate[26]. The song was sung in episode 8 of season 2.

[edit] Comics

The show's official website included a comic book that was distributed at the 2007 Comic-Con International in San Diego, which features new mysteries and background information not shown on the televised episodes.[27] The book also contains recaps of aired episodes.[28]

After the show struggled in the ratings during its second season, Bryan Fuller said that should ABC not pick up the series for additional episodes he would release comic books, and maybe a movie, based on the show in order to wrap up outstanding stories for fans.[29] Warner Bros. has given the okay to Fuller to produce comic books.[30]

[edit] Connections to other shows

  • In "Bzzzzzzz!" Ned says he's a temp from Happy Time Temporary Services. This is the temp agency that George Lass works at in Bryan Fuller's Dead Like Me.
  • Beth Grant reprised her role as Marianne Marie Beetle from the Wonderfalls episode "Muffin Buffalo" in the second season episode "Comfort Food".
  • In the episode "Legend of Merle McQuoddy", many references to the 1977 Disney movie Pete's Dragon can be found: A lighthouse keeper loses her lover to a storm at sea, and continues watching for him from her lighthouse. Her son is named Elliot, her husband named Merle and their last name is McQuoddy. At one point, two characters seek refuge in a cave by the sea. "Candle on the Water", a song from Pete's Dragon, is sung. Also, series regular Jim Dale (the narrator), starred as Doc Terminus in Pete's Dragon.

[edit] Critical reception

Critics responded well to the series, comparing the style and direction to that of director Tim Burton.[32] The pilot, before it officially aired, was well-received by critics who were able to screen it. TV Guide's Michael Ausiello claimed that "ABC has found its next Lost!" upon review[33] and the series has also been touted as "the fall show with the most spring buzz"[34] by many, including the trade publication Variety.[35] New York Magazine also provided it with a rave review, calling it "funny, imaginative and smart" while also claiming it "boasts Gilmore Girls-speed wit."[36] Television Without Pity declared it "one of the most original, most genuinely entertaining shows on TV. It's filled with tongue-tying turns of phrase, fabulous set design and a fantastic cast."[37] Time magazine's James Poniewozik named it one of the Top 10 New TV Series of 2007, ranking it at #5.[38] The show was also heavily promoted by E! online columnist Kristin Dos Santos (who guest starred in one episode as the "30's Woman") and was featured in her Top 10 shows of 2007.
