Anna Friel has admitted that whilst she loves being a mum, she doesn’t want to sacrifice her career for her daughter.
The Pushing Daisies star told WENN. “”I love being a mother so much, but this is also an important time in my career where things are finally happening for me. I don’t ever want to regret not making the most of it, so I bring my daughter to work with me. It’s the only way to make it work.”
Famed magician The Great Herrmann hires Emerson to investigate the killing of his animal assistants and the visit to Conjurer’s Castle provides Ned with a discovery of his own about his half-brothers. Dwight Dixon insinuates himself into the aunts’ lives, but Lily is suspicious of his motives.
The second series of Pushing Daisies was on ITV last night, and I have to wonder why on earth ITV bought the rights to the second series? It’s absolute tripe.
I watched two episodes of series one because I was interested to see if it lived up to the hype it’d been given at the time, and it didn’t then and it’s even worse now.
Last night’s episode was one of thirteen and was entitled Bzzzzzzz! It centred around the story of a woman who died following a bee attack so Chuck and Ned investigated when her husband hired them to get to the bottom of the case… Read more & comment »
In tonight’s season premiere “Bzzzzzzzzz!” Chuck goes undercover as a “Bee Girl” at a honey-based cosmetics company after their new spokesmodel (guest star Autumn Reeser) is stung to death. She soon discovers that office politics are killer (literally) between the founder (guest star Missi Pyle as Betty Bee) and the new owner (guest star French Stewart as Woolsey Nicholls).
ABC’s “Pushing Daisies” may not be returning to our screens according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The show wrapped production on its 13th episode Thursday, and sources are saying that the network does not plan to order more episodes.
ABC is remaining tight lipped on the subject, and series creator Bryan Fuller said he has not heard a verdict.
“Our ABC exec was on the set last night saying they are still swinging in the fight to keep ‘Daisies’ on the air,” Fuller said. “Spirits are high and hopeful and everyone here is very proud of our work and this show.”
US TV network, ABC have asked the show’s creator, Bryan Fuller to make the second series of the show “more grounded.”
“The first part of [this] season was really tough,” Fuller told USA Today. “They were like, ‘Let’s ground the show a little more; it can’t be a cartoon. We can’t have the show be weird and not get an audience.’
“And we were like, ‘We can’t have the show be boring and not get the people back we had last year.’ The challenge to me was to make sure the fundamental DNA of the show didn’t change.” Read more & comment »
ITV recently came under fire for cutting short the current series of US comedy drama, Pushing Daisies, by one episode.
Although the channel argued that the episode was not essential to the progression of the series, many fans were furious that they would miss an episode due to the timing of a football match. We suggested that ITV screen the episode on their website, so that ardent fans could view the series in its entirety, as the producers intended. It seems as though ITV have listened, and they have announced that the episode will be available from this Saturday, for one week only.
Get a load of this – ITV are dropping the second episode of Pushing Daisies so that they can finish the series before Euro 2008 begins.
This isn’t the first time one of the major networks has screwed over the fans of a TV show in favour of another show. The Doctor Who timeslot varies ridiculously due to the BBC giving other programmes priority.
Apparently, they will drop the second episode – which gives us more insight into Ned and his ability to raise the dead – because it’s the only episode they could lose without spoiling the story.
