The Pushing Daisies TV show was a 60 minute dramatic fantasy series on ABC about a man with the amazing ability to return the dead to life when he touched them. If he touched them a second time within one minute it returned them to death. If he didn't touch them a second time within one minute, someone else would die to take their place! He mostly used his power to ask the "dead" who killed them, thus solving their murder.

Pushing Daisies Trivia
The final three episodes of the Pushing Daisies TV show were not shown until more than five months after the other episodes of the final season. ABC had canceled the series at mid-season and normally the final three episodes would never have aired but in an unusual move, the network decided to broadcast them in May and June after their other shows went on hiatus for the summer.
Pushing Daisies won much critical acclaim. It garnered a total of 57 award nominations and won 18 of them. Seven of those were Emmy wins!
A Pushing Daisies comic book was given out at the 2007 Comic-Con convention. It contained information about the characters and mysteries that were never show on TV. It also had a recap of each episode that aired on television.
Pushing Daisies creator, Bryan Fuller, has often stated that he would create a third season of the show in comic book form and that he was considering producing a movie. As of this writing (May 2011) neither of those things has happened.
Audiences never saw the face of Pushing Daisie's narrator, Jim Dale. Bryan Fuller once stated that he intended to have Dale appear on screen at some point but the series was canceled before that could take place.
