Pushing Daises

A suburban pie maker discovers that he has the ability to bring dead people back to life. But there are rules governing his gift: balance must be maintained, so if he brings someone back from the dead, a substitute person must die; and, if he touches someone he has brought back to life, that person will die immediately — and permanently.

He re-animates his childhood love — whom he can never again touch — and, along with a private investigator and a lovesick waitress, they solve murders. With Lee Pace, Anna Friel, Kristen Chenoweth, Chi McBride, Swoosie Kurtz and Ellen Greene; Jim Dale narrates. This critically acclaimed “forensic fairy tale” won 7 Primetime Emmy® awards.
