‘Pushing Daisies’ Season Two Due July 2131 Mar, 2009 By: John Latchem
Warner Home Video releases Pushing Daisies: The Complete Second Season July 21 (prebook June 16) on DVD ($39.98) and Blu-ray Disc ($49.99).
The sets include all 13 episodes from the 2008-09 season of the series about a man (Lee Pace) who has the ability to bring back the dead. The show, created by Bryan Fuller (Dead Like Me), was known for its colorful sets and quirky storylines. It attracted a decent following upon its debut in 2007, but lost momentum after the writers strike cut the first season short, and ABC canceled it midway through year two.
Narrated by Jim Dale, the show’s cast includes Anna Friel, Kristin Chenoweth, Swoosie Kurtz, Chi McBride and Ellen Greene. Second-season guest stars include French Stewart, Autumn Reeser, Diana Scarwid, David Arquette, Jennifer Elise Cox, Stephen Root and Wendie Malick.
Extras on the season two boxed set include the featurettes “The Master Pie Maker,” about Fuller’s creative process; “From Oven to Table,” about turning a script gag into reality; “Secret Sweet Ingredients,” about the show’s music; and “Add a Little Magic,” about the visual effects.
