Exclusive: 'Pushing Daisies' creator Bryan Fuller puts down roots at Syfy

pushing_daisiesImage Credit: Justin Stephens/ABC; Kevin Parry/Getty ImagesAlways with the flora, that one: Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller, I’ve learned exclusively, has just sealed a deal with Syfy to adapt The Lotus Caves for the small screen.

The Lotus what now?

The Lotus Caves—it’s an uberpopular book by syfy… er, sci-fi novelist John Christopher. In it, rebellious lunar colonists dare to take a peek beyond their borders and discover a bunch of brainiac aliens living in the caves of the title.

Anyhoo, Fuller, who also brought Dead Like Me to life, will co-write the script with fellow Daisies gardener Jim Grey.

Thoughts? My first one is “Yay!” Curiously, that’s also my second one. Your turn. Go!

    I will watch anything Bryan Fuller creates. YAY!!!!!!!!

    • Jersey Jeff

      You were first, and you wasted it with a comment about some show you have never seen. Next time brag about how you were first, it is quite the honor.

        Wow, who peed in your Cheerios this morning?

    • Laura

      Agree. I atleast am intersted in giving anything he is behind a chance after the amazingness of Pushing Daisies, which I loved so much.

    • minister

      Sweet! Very happy to see “SyFy” (bleech) take another shot at greatness post-Battlestar, given that most of their originals (and syndicateds) are unwatchable nose-wrenching putrescence.

      p.s. Don’t get all in a huff. I’m glad Caprica got a second season too…. also, I occasionally watch Eureka & Warehouse 13 w/o speeding up the Tivo.

    This is great news. Fuller is golden. “Pushing Daisies”, “Wonderfalls” and “Dead Like Me” were all excellent shows that were cancelled way too soon. Hopefully Syfy will give him a change to actually make it past a season or two.

    • lorraine

      So true, I dont know where he comes up with these ideas for shows but they are awesome and highly entertaining

    • minister

      Man, I hope Joss Whedon follows Fuller’s example & moves to cable from Fox (if only to FX…)

    • offtovegas

      That was exactly my thought too. All his shows have been SO good and all have been canceled much too soon. Kind of makes me cautious about watching this one when it comes out because what if I fall in love with it like Pushing Daisies and get my heart broken again when it is abruptly canceled??

  • Bobby

    Does this mean that his collaboration with Bryan Singer to adapt Augusten Burroughs’s Sellevision for NBC is dead? It has almost been a year since it was announced, and we haven’t heard anything about it.

  • ashley

    my first thoughts…. don’t get attached… pushing daisies, dead like me, wonderfalls…. loved them all and yet none of them lasted…. *sighs* oh well, fingers crossed that this show is just as great and actually lasts

  • Bridget

    woohoo I second Michelle’s comment … i miss Pushing Daisies :(

  • Victoria

    Bring Pushing Daisies back!!!!

    • Beck

      I wish “Pushing Daisies” would come back. I loved that show. It was such an odd-duck little show with such brightly-colored oddities all the time. I miss the uniqueness of the show. Plus I would like a final ending.

    • Karen

      Seriously they just need to bring Pushing Daisies back I think it will suck as a comic book series. JUST DO A SMALL 6 EPISODE SEASON OR SOMETHING!!!

  • john

    thank God it’s not going to be on ABC. DumbA*s network cancelled “Pushing Daisies” and pushed me into withdrawl!!! I truly miss that show.

    • Tommy

      ABC cancelled the show because NOBODY watched it. I loved Pushing Daisies too, but any other network would have done the same thing.

      • Dave

        The ratings for the first season of Pushing Daisies were fine. But then the writers strike happened and the show was off the air for 10 months. If ABC cared enough about the show’s continued success, they would have promoted it very well, especially after such a long hiatus. But it seemed ABC had already given up and they barely promoted the show. So all in all, the cancellation had much to do with the writers strike, but ABC also played their part in the demise of the show.

  • Lelolai

    I agree with Michelle. I’ll watch anything that Bryan Fuller writes/creates. I’ve adored all his shows.

  • hilarykb

    Is this a series or a made-for-tv movie??

  • Erin

    i too will also watch anything by Bryan Fuller, he’s amazing! I cannot wait for the Pushing Daisies comics to come out… that needs to happen soon!

  • JLC

    Whatever happened to the PD comic book that was supposed to tie up all the loose ends? Chi McBride said he had seen a number of pages, but that was over a year ago.
    Whatever, I’ll watch this new thingy because Fuller is one of the best there is.

  • Eric

    I still mourn the loss of Dead Like Me. It was such a great show!

  • DW

    Bryan Fuller + cable should = awesomeness. Well, assuming Syfy doesn’t screw him out of his own show the way Showtime did back in the day.

  • meliot

    I have watched and loved everything Bryan Fuller has done. Each show has been brilliant, smart, and original. I have always been disappointed the mainstream public has not been able to get behind his genius. I am psyched, but warry that I may quickly fall in love, and then just as quickly have that love taken away…

  • Sarah

    Anything with Bryan Fuller and I’m there; that man is a genius!
