ABC Pushing "Daisies"
ABC continues to use innovative approach to marketing its freshman series as it stages the screening of its groundbreaking fantasy rookie series "Pushing Daisies" at a public cemetary today. The pilot will also be screened at next month's New York Television Festival, it was announced on Wednesday.
The risky drama that will be required to anchor Wednesday night, a night of all-new programming this fall on ABC (including "Private Practice" and "Dirty Sexy Money"), will be introduced by the show’s cast members and executive producers at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Santa Monica Boulevard on Thursday.
The supernatural forensic drama of brilliant visual qualities executive produced by Bryan Fuller ("Heroes") and Barry Sonnenfeld ("Men in Black") is like nothing you have ever seen on TV before. It centers around a man named Ned (Lee Pace) who can resurrect the dead and uses his powers to solve murders.
The pilot will also be screened at the 3rd annual New York Television Festival and Fuller, Sonnenfeld and members of the cast will be the guests at a reception at New World Stages where they will answer questions from festivalgoers. The festival promotes independent TV production.
