Where Are They Now? Some Greenroom Chatter for December 26, 2008

While you're out shopping in stores today, you could see some of the talent from cancelled TV shows. Others may be hard at work on shows like 90210, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Samantha Who?, and Damages. Those keeping busy include William H. Macy (Sports Night), Rob Thomas, Ken Marino and Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks), Adam Scott (Tell Me You Love Me), Jane Lynch (Help Me Help You), Lizzy Caplan (The Class), Kristin Chenoweth (Pushing Daisies), David E. Kelley (Boston Legal), Matt Lanter (Commander in Chief), Tracy Pollan (Family Ties), Marissa Jaret Winokur (Stacked), Barbara Eden (I Dream of Jeannie), Dean McDermott (Tori & Dean: Inn Love), Rena Sofer (Just Shoot Me!), Connor Trinneer (Star Trek: Enterprise), Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood), Billy Zane (Twin Peaks), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), and Wendy Diamond (Greatest American Dog). Remember on Bewitched when Dick York was replaced by Dick Sargent? Well, the same thing's about to happen to another Sam, this time on ABC's Samantha Who? sitcom. Apparently Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood) is so busy working on FX's Damages that he's not available to reprise his role as Christina Applegate's ex-boyfriend, Funk. As a result, they're recasting the role with Billy Zane (Twin Peaks). Geez, don't you think this is messing with poor Samantha's noggin a bit much?

Pushing DaisiesThough it seems almost certain that ABC won't be ordering any more episodes of Pushing Daisies, Bryan Fuller, the TV show's creator wants to assure fans that the colorful story isn't over yet. Pushing Daisies tells the a pie-maker (Lee Pace) who can bring people back from the dead, his previously-deceased girlfriend (Anna Friel), his detective partner (Chi McBride), and a collection of other colorful characters played by Kristin Chenoweth, Swoosie Kurtz, Ellen Greene and Jim Dale (the show's unseen narrator). Last night, at the Paley Center for Media, series creator Fuller, executive producer Peter Ocko, and most of the show's writers gathered to talk about Daisies. Those on hand included Gretchen J. Berg, Chad Creasey, Dara Creasey, Abby Gewanter, Jim Gray, Aaron Harberts, Lisa Joy, and Kath Lingenfelter. Quite naturally, the series' uncertain fate was front and center of everyone's mind. Fuller said that there still hasn't been any decisions from the network about their intention to order additional episodes to fill out the season.

Pushing Daisies: Essentially Cancelled or Is There a Still a Chance?

November 11, 2008
Pushing DaisiesLast season, Pushing Daisies became the critics' new darling TV show and was nominated for a dozen Emmys. Last Spring, the show was given a second chance at life. Will it receive a third? Pushing Daisies tells the tale of Ned (Lee Pace), a pie-maker who's able to bring people back from the dead with his touch. However, if he touches the person a second time, they're dead for good -- a fact that keeps him from embracing his formerly-deceased sweetheart, Charlotte "Chuck" (Anna Friel). Because his baking work isn't very lucrative, Ned goes into business with a private-eye named Emerson Cod (Chi McBride) and they solve cases where only the deceased have the answers. Others series characters include Olive (Kristin Chenoweth), a waitress at Ned's bakery; Chuck's mother, Lily (Swoosie Kurtz); Chuck's bizarre Aunt Vivian (Ellen Greene); and the series' all-knowing narrator (Jim Dale). The unique and lighthearted drama debuted on ABC on October 3, 2007. It attracted a lot of press, over 13 million viewers, and a 4.3/13 rating/share of the desirable 18-49 demographic.
