Heroes Writer Focuses on Pushing Daisies

at . Comments
Bryan Fuller has been hard at work for months.

The Heroes writer is also the mind behind a new ABC show, Pushing Daisies.

And he recently admitted that the success of the former helped him land a deal for the latter.

The combination of dark and light, death and hope, that is so prominent on Heroes is also the basis for Daisies. It's about a pie maker who has the power to raise the dead with a single touch.
At one point, Fuller was simultaneously writing the 17th episode of Heroes and penning the first one for his new show.

"A guy can touch dead people once and bring them back to life," said Fuller of Pushing Daisies. "And if he touches them again, they go back to being dead. Problem is, he touches a dead girl, falls in love with her and can never touch her again."

Sounds worth a viewing or two to us.

Mohinder: (voiceover) There are many ways to define our fragile existence; many ways to give it meaning. But it is our memories that shape its purpose and give it context. The private assortment of images: fears, loves, regrets… for it’s the cruel irony of life that we are destined to hold the dark with the light, the good with the evil, success with disappointment… this is what separates us, what makes us human. And in the end, we must fight to hold on to.
