The creator of Pushing Daisies grew up in Clarkston, Washington in the 1970s and '80s.

And thanks to his show's success, Bryan Fuller was recently featured in the Lewiston Tribune. Here's an excerpt from the article:

Fuller marinated his young brain on a diet of Stephen King, "Star Trek" and "The Twilight Zone." TV was a passage to another world but he never imagined he would one day be on the other side of the screen, orchestrating his own fantasies from his own office at Warner Bros. studios.

The 38-year-old is the writer and producer of one of the seasons most critically acclaimed new series, the supernatural fairy tale "Pushing Daisies," which airs at 8 p.m. Wednesdays on ABC.

"Every day is kind of crazy," says Fuller about life as an L.A. writer and producer. "Once the scripts are written it's a matter of producing them. There's a lot of meticulous detail that goes into this show. ... It's sort of alchemy to get the tone."

Fuller, who was also a writer and producer for "Wonderfalls" and "Heroes," describes his newest show as a hybrid fantasy, murder mystery and love story. Every detail of the show goes through him, from the props and sets to visual effects and music. That's one of the rewarding things about writing for TV, he says, as opposed to film, where the writers job ends with the words.

"It's very intensive. I'm often working anywhere from 15 to 20 hour days, and that includes the weekends."
