Daisies Bloom Again

Emmy Award winner Pushing Daisies, the most imaginative and colorful series on television, finally returns tomorrow night. Hopes are high that the fantastical show will regain the momentum lost by last season's writers' strike.

Plans for the new season include more romance for Ned and Chuck (Lee Pace and Anna Friel), a mother (Debra Mooney) for Emerson (Chi McBride), and Olive (Kristin Chenoweth) in a convent (yes, there will be a Sound of Music homage). Also expect some familiar faces; guest stars slated to appear include David Arquette, Jennifer Elise Cox, Orlando Jones, Mary Kay Place, Stephen Root and Fred Willard, plus the expected returns of Raúl Esparza, Paul Reubens and Molly Shannon.

If you're new to Pushing Daisies or just want to refresh your memory after ten long months without a visit to the Pie Hole, ABC's "Starter Kit" video will get you up to speed. And for a preview of the new season, here's an extended clip from this summer's Comic-Con.
