Cemetary a lively premiere setting

'Pushing Daisies' bows at Hollywood Forever

Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever cemetery is fast becoming the unlikely “in” venue for TV and film premieres.

The cemetery, final resting place for early Hollywood stars like Rudolph Valentino and Douglas Fairbanks, as well as rockers Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone, was the backdrop Aug. 16 for a screening of ABC’s quirky new drama “Pushing Daisies.”

Exec producers Bryan Fuller and Barry Sonnenfeld were slated to attend as the aud caught the pilot to “Daisies,” which revolves around a piemaker who can bring the dead back to life.

It’s not the first time a supernatural network skein unspooled at the cemetery: CBS’ “Ghost Whisperer” screened its pilot there in 2005.

The Hollywood Forever tenants are used to the crowds by now; Cinespia hosts its popular classic movie screenings at the cemetery every weekend throughout the warm months.
