Pushing Daisies - Pushing Daisies Musical In The Works

Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller is in the process of turning the cult Tv series into a musical.

The acclaimed supernatural comedy-drama, starring Anna Friel, Lee Pace and Kristin Chenoweth, ran in the U.S. for just two seasons, but avid fans are still hoping to resurrect the series.

Fuller has now revealed he is planning to make devotees' wishes come true with plans to create a stage version of the show.

He says, "I've had conversations very recently with (executive producer/director) Barry Sonnenfeld about financing a film, and with Kristin Chenoweth and Warner Brothers about developing a stage musical."

Fuller previously stated in a different interview, "We're working on something that is definitely a Pushing Daisies revival, and the idea would be to have as many cast as we can to participate in it."

In its short tenure, the series received 17 Emmy nominations and seven wins, including Broadway veteran Chenoweth's Outstanding Supporting Actress prize in 2009.
