“Pushing Daisies” might be over on TV, but that doesn’t mean Bryan Fuller is. It’s just been announced that he’s working on two pilots for NBC — one based on an Augusten Bourroughs book (Sellevision) and the other about a no-kill animal shelter. For more information, read on:
Bryan Fuller and Bryan Singer are partnering to adapt the Augusten Burroughs book “Sellevision” for NBC.
Fuller also has a second script — his first stab at a half-hour comedy — in the works at the Peacock.
“Sellevision” revolves around the inner workings at a fictional home shopping channel. The hourlong comedy-drama came about when both Fuller and Singer independently contacted former HSN topper Mark Bozek, who resigned in 2002 to become a film and TV producer, about collaborating on a TV project.
Bozek had originally planned to direct a feature version of “Sellevision,” to be toplined by Kristin Davis and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but the movie never got off the ground. That’s when it was reimagined as a TV series.
Universal Media Studios is producing the project; Fuller, Singer, Bozek and Russell Nuce will exec produce, while Jason Taylor is a producer.
