Bryan Fuller made an appearance at WonderCon in San Francisco today. (BFO’s webmaster actually got a chance to meet him and tell him about the site. If you’re reading this: Hi, Bryan!) There, he was interviewed by AssignmentX and talked a little bit about fan favorites, “Heroes” and “Pushing Daisies.”
Bryan Fuller was both a co-executive producer and consulting producer for NBC’s HEROES during its run before moving to PUSHING DAISIES on ABC and then briefly returning to HEROES for its final year.
So does he hear about anything happening with the series either movies or otherwise?
“Nothing,” Fuller says. “I wouldn’t be surprised if they waited for a while and then they reinvented it entirely. There have been two regime changes at NBC since HEROES came out and neither of those had a vested interest in the show. I can’t imagine they would go back into the vault, but in five years, they could re-invent the premise.”
Bryan Fuller’s baby PUSHING DAISIES only lasted two seasons on ABC and one could argue at the treatment it received during that second season. However, he isn’t saying goodbye just yet and would love to have it appear on another network at some point.
“I am really emboldened by what Starz is doing with TORCHWOOD and I would love to do a PUSHING DAISIES mini-series on Starz,” Fuller says. “This would be a great way to wrap up the show properly. [We could] do six great episodes or even a PUSHING DAISIES movie. But I kind of like the idea of a Starz mini-series since they really embraced TORCHWOOD.”
