“Pushing Daisies” goes to the O.C. fair

Pushingdaisiespie_2ABC has been good about coming up with clever promo stunts for its clever-quirky dramedy Pushing Daisies.”

Last year it was a special pre-premiere screening of the pilot seg at the Hollywood Forever cemetery. This year they’re hosting a Pie Hole pie-eating contest at the Orange County Fair.

Field Cate and Sammi Hanratty (pictured below at last year’s Hollywood Forever event), the moppets who play the kid versions of Lee Pace’s Ned and Anna Friel’s Chuck, will be on hand for the cherry promotion, which will run July 11-12 and July 15-19, and six more nights between July 22-Aug. 2.

If you’re inclined to scarf some pie and pick up a few “Pushing Daisies” trinkets, get yourself down to the O.C. Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa. Somehow I’m guessing “Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller can put away a lot pie; he must love the stuff to have made them such a dominant motif in his romantic fairy tale.

“Daisies” was one of the casualties of the WGA walkout last season, as its promising frosh year was Pushingdaisieskids rudely interrupted. The show’s re-launch is off to a good start, as it seems to have a strong shot a copping an Emmy nom for comedy series after making the top 10 of vote-getters in the nominations polling. Here’s hoping it comes back in the fall with pie-high ratings.
