Pushing Daisies Movie a Possibility, Chenoweth Says
Bad news and very good news for Pushing Daisies fans, straight from star Kristin Chenoweth: The final episodes, when and if they eventually air, won't resolve all of the plotlines on the show — but show creator Bryan Fuller has an idea for a movie that would.
"It would wrap up a lot of the unanswered questions that people will have once they finally air our final episodes," the singer-actress told TVGuide.com.
And is Fuller pushing ABC to air those episodes?
"It's way too good to push on somebody," she said. "You either air it and let the world see it or — you know, that show, I'm sorry if it sounds arrogant, but it's the best thing ever."
Fuller himself hinted at the possibility at a recent appearance at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, where he also talked about his longstanding idea of resolving the story in comic-book form.
If the movie goes ahead, Chenoweth says she's in — and she believes her Daisies castmates would be as well.
"I'm sure that Bryan Fuller wouldn't do it without the six main characters," she said. "Paul Reubens was a big part of it — we have certain guest stars that are standouts that we'd want back. But he has such a great idea for it. ... We all want to."
Fuller is returning to Heroes, his former show, and has written a part for Daisies alum Swoozie Kurtz.
Chenoweth, meanwhile, is moving on to David E. Kelley new legal pilot, Legally Mad.
"My character is Skippy Pylon — I love the name — she's the smartest lawyer in the firm, but she's insane. She's crazy. So it'll be very different from Olive. It's also going to be very fun for me to play that kind of part — someone who will just let a judge have it."
