Tonight's big premiere is the quirky comedy "Pushing Daisies" which premieres at 8 p.m. on ABC. There are a lot of big names associated with this dramedy, including executive producer Bryan Fuller, whose previous shows include "Wonderfalls" and "Heroes." Director Barry Sonnenfeld also produces, and directed the pilot. Lee Pace stars as a piemaker who can bring the dead back to life if he touches them. Problem is, if he touches them again, they're dead for good. Bring in a dead first love, and you can see where that could get tricky. And, because every show on TV has to involve some element of crime or procedurals, the piemaker uses this gift to help solve murders.
We haven't seen the pilot, but from what we've read, and the clips we've seen, this could either be delightful or completely and utterly annoying.
