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 name their killers. But the tale gets complicated, as all tales do, 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.

Emmy nominee Lee Pace ("The Good Shepherd," "Soldier's Girl"), Golden Globe nominee Anna Friel ( "Goal" film series, " upcoming "Land of the Lost,"), Chi McBride ("The Nine," "Boston Public"), Tony nominee Ellen Greene ("Little Shop of Horrors"), Emmy� and Tony winner Swoosie Kurtz ("Huff," "Sisters") and Emmy� nominee and Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth ("The West Wing") star in the visually stunning series from Living Dead Guy Productions, 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 Peter Ocko ("Boston Legal," "Dead Like Me") serve as executive producers. In its first season "Pushing Daisies" garnered a Directors Guild of America Award and a Gracie Award, and received an astounding twelve Emmy�, Golden Globe, Writers Guild of America and Edgar Award nominations.
