Bryan Fuller pushes Pushing Daisies revival for empty Roseanne slot

Never one to turn down a choice opportunity, prolific showrunner Bryan Fuller has tossed his fashionable cap into the ring now that ABC has rid itself of ratings darling Roseannein the wake of star Roseanne Barr's racist behavior on Twitter.

Fuller, the writer/producer behind American Gods, Star Trek: Discovery, Hannibal, and Pushing Daisies (yes he’s exited plenty of series over the last decade), is apparently ready to fill the gap. The tweet below serves as his joking (we think) all-caps pitch: 

Fuller's Pushing Daisies ran on ABC from 2007 to 2009, and won multiple Emmys. The death-defying detective series starring Lee Pace has a fanbase as passionately against its cancellation as any show that has ever met an untimely demise due to low ratings.

And, as Fuller has most recently left The Vampire Chronicles show and is actively advocating for a revival of one of his old darlings (however jokingly), fans might take the chance to assume that if Fuller is working on anything, he’d drop it for Pushing Daisies. If ABC takes him a bit more seriously than intended, perhaps it’s possible. The TV landscape continues to be fertile for revivals and reboots, so Pushing Daisies fans may not find themselves holding their breath forever.
