Is Pushing Daisies Bound for Broadway?
At least, that’s what Daisies creator Bryan Fuller hinted at during Comic-Con, both during a panel for his new NBC shows — Mockingbird Lane and Hannibal — and when he talked with TVLine’s Michael Ausiello.
“We’re working on something that is definitely a Pushing Daisies revival,” he teased, choosing his words carefully, “and the idea would be to have as many cast [members] as we can to participate in it.” (We can almost see the dancing pies musical number now!)
As for his other projects? The Heroes vet said Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane has a “velvety elegance” to it and that the network has been “incredibly supportive” throughout — so supportive, in fact, that the pilot “looks like a $150 million movie.” Even cooler, he’s on board with bringing cast members from the original sitcom into the modern-day retelling. And Hannibal, the Silence of the Lambs prequel set to start shooting in August, will be gory and provocative. “We’re going to be pushing the envelope until it pushes back,” he promised.
