In this day and age, procedural dramas are a dime a dozen, but none are half as inventive as 2007’s Pushing Daisies.
Long before Once Upon a Time’s fairy tale characters or Grimm’s twisted creatures, this whimsical ABC cult hit introduced us to Ned, aka “The Piemaker,” a seemingly normal restaurant owner who could bring dead things back to life with a simple touch.
Alongside private investigator (and reluctant friend) Emerson Cod, they solved murder cases, but it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows. If Ned didn’t touch the victim again within 60 seconds (in turn, rendering them dead), someone else in the world would die — which he learned the hard way as a child.
The quirky show’s short-lived two-season run helped make Kristin Chenoweth a household name, but what about the rest of the cast? Click through the gallery to find out what happened to Chuck, the love of Ned’s life, and the rest of the fantastic characters. Hint: One of them is a vampire now! ;
