“Pushing Daisies” Hollywood Forever screening on Thursday

PdaisiespromoNow here’s a clever promo idea. ABC has skedded a promo screening of its buzzed-about dramedy “Pushing Daisies” at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Thursday night. “Daisies” creator/exec producer Bryan Fuller will be on hand to introduce the screening, and ABC is promising “a limited number of special treats at the conclusion of the event for attendees.” The Hollywood Forever midnight screenings of movies, morbid-themed and otherwise, have been a local treat for a few years now. With its focus on a guy who has the ability to bring people back from the dead, briefly, the lighthearted (really) “Daisies” is a perfect fit with the Hollywood Forever series, especially now that billboards for the show are sprouting up all over town. “Pushing Daisies,” starring Lee Pace and Anna Friel, bows at 8 p.m. on Oct. 3.

For more info on “Pushing Daisies,” read this On the Air column with Bryan Fuller from a few months ago, and this dispatch from TCA last month.
