With the immense and ever-increasing success of the “Veronica Mars” movie Kickstarter campaign, we were bound to get more projects pledging to try to achieve the same.
While talking with HitFix about hitting it big with “Veronica Mars” through crowd funding, show creator Rob Thomas dropped the bomb for “Pushing Daises” creator, Bryan Fuller. When asked about how his success may effect the industry and fellow producers, Thomas explained, “I did get an email from Bryan Fuller earlier today saying, ‘Hey, can you jump on the phone with me at some point? I know you’re busy, but I would love to talk to you about how this thing works.’” Thomas added, “And I know it was specifically for ‘Pushing Daisies.’”
The former ABC show focused on Lee Pace’s Ned, a pie-maker with the ability to bring the dead back to life with a simple touch. Kristin Chenoweth co-starred as Olive Snook, a waitress at Ned’s restaurant, “The Pie Hole,” and, while promoting her upcoming film, “Family Weekend,” she weighed in on the possibility of getting a “Pushing Daises” movie fired up via Kickstarter.
Check out what she had to say in the video clip below and keep an eye out for our full coverage of the “Family Weekend” press conference next week.
