ABOUT PUSHING DAISIES

From Bryan Fuller (Heroes) and Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black) comes an unprecedented blend of romance, crime procedural and high-concept fantasy in a forensic fairytale about a young man with a very special gift. Once upon a time, a mild-mannered boy named Ned realized he could touch dead things and bring them back to life. Grown-up Ned puts his ability to good use, not only touching dead fruit and making it ripe with everlasting flavor, but working with an investigator to crack murder cases by asking the deceased to names their killers. But the tale gets complicated when Ned brings his childhood sweetheart, Chuck, back from the dead and keeps her alive. Chuck encourages him to use his power to help others, instead of merely solving mysteries and collecting the rewards. Life would be perfect for Ned and Chuck, except for one cruel twist: If he ever touches her again, she’ll go back to being dead, this time for good.

Golden Globe nominee Lee Pace (The Good Shepherd, Soldier’s Girl), Anna Friel (Goal film series, Rogue Trader), Chi McBride (The Nine, Boston Public), Tony nominee Ellen Greene (Little Shop of Horrors), Emmy and Tony winner Swoosie Kurtz (Huff, Sisters) and Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth (The West Wing) star in the visually stunning series from the Jinks/Cohen Company, in association with Warner Bros. Television. Tony winner Jim Dale, reader of the Harry Potter series of audio books, is the narrator.

In addition to Fuller and Sonnenfeld, Dan Jinks & Bruce Cohen (Academy Award-winning producers of American Beauty) and Brooke Kennedy (Numb3rs) serve as executive producers.
