ABC President: Pushing Pushing Daisies

by at . Comments
Stephen McPherson, pictured, is the President of ABC. He recently spoke with The Los Angeles Times about a bevy of new shows on the network, most notably Pushing Daisies.

ABC is rolling out the most new shows this fall. How does the upcoming season look?
We're excited to get going. We're in a more stable place than in years past and it's nice to go into September with a lot of hits - Ugly Betty, Grey's, Lost" and Dancing With the Stars. We have Sunday, Monday and Thursday working well. And we've got some great shows coming up where we really took some chances - Dirty, Sexy, Money and Pushing Daisies.

Pushing Daisies already has made an impression with the critics.
My hats off to Bryan Fuller, who created the show. It's his vision from beginning to end. Barry Sonnenfeld brought a great touch to the premiere episode. It's a truly unique, interesting, touching procedural show with romance, intrigue and comedy to it.

Visually, it's the most stunning show put on television in years. We've had a lot of success taking chances - whether it was Lost or Ugly Betty. Pushing Daisies is one of those shows that stands out in a crowded market. It's wonderful doing shows like this and not just trying to copy what's already working out there.
