‘Pushing Daisies’ to Be Canceled by ABC

It has been reported that ABC network has made a decision to cancel ‘Pushing Daisies’ production along with other two series, ‘Dirty Sexy Money’ and ‘Eli Stone’.

This fall season, yet another serial TV show has been canceled from its upcoming production. Bryan Fuller, “” co-executive producer in 2006-2007 period, has given a statement to E! Online that his drama comedy series, ““, has been canceled by ABC network.

To E! Online, Fuller gives a confirmation over the series’ axing saying that the decision comes directly from ABC network. He additionally mentions that ABC ‘s President of Entertainment, Steve McPherson, has personally called him about the matter.

In further explanation, he says that the cancellation comes after ABC decides not to order more episodes. “He (McPherson) never said we’re canceled but that was the gist of it. He said they’re proud of the show and not ordering episodes at this time,” Fuller says. “I could read between the lines and interpret that the door could be open in the future but I think that the gist of that is that we weren’t going to be moving forward on ABC.”

Fuller also states, “It’s very likely that Pushing Daisies will end after episode 13, which as you know, is a cliffhanger. But we are talking to DC Comics about doing comic books that will wrap up our storylines, and I already have a pitch for a movie ready to go.” Then he adds, “To be honest, I am so proud of the show. We put together 22 really good episodes. I’m sure I’ll be working with a lot of these people again, and I would love to do so.”

Fuller refuses to give any reasons over the cancellation, but the latest ratings show that “Pushing Daisies” episode entitled “Oh, Oh, Oh, It’s Magic”, has been watched by only 4.86 million viewers.

At the same time, the same unfortunate situation has also happened to ABC’s other series, “” and ““. Reliable sources have reported to E! Online that the two series have followed the footsteps of “Pushing Daisies” to be canceled. Still, the series’ representatives have refused to give any comment. —  Ace Showbiz
