NBC’s Hannibal put a darkly dreamy spin on one of cinema’s most iconic villains, but did you know the network ordered the series on the strength of creator Bryan Fuller’s pilot script alone? Or that it has its own chef to craft its culinary cannibal delights? These are just some of the delicious morsels to savor in the ninth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which serves up an appetizing look at NBC’s Hannibal!
A few weeks ago we heard the surprising news that 'Hannibal' creator Bryan Fuller had an eye on casting glam rock icon David Bowie as Hannibal's uncle should the NBC drama be granted a second season, but it seems Fuller has far more familiar faces in mind. Should NBC decide to serve 'Hannibal' a second course, Fuller will do his best to reunite the 'Pushing Daisies' cast by bringing in actors Lee Pace, Kristin Chenoweth and Anna Friel! Find out about the big 'Pushing Daisies' reunion on 'Hannibal' inside!
Though the Kickstarter fanfare of the 'Veronica Mars' movie seems to have died down, Bryan Fuller's cancelled ABC dramedy 'Pushing Daisies' remains along the frontrunners for fan-funded film treatment. When last we heard, the 'Hannibal' showrunner worried the prospect might prove too expensive, but new reports about the potential film's plot might just prove why a 'Pushing Daisies' movie would be difficult to get off the ground. See how 'Pushing Daisies' meets 'The Walking Dead' inside!
Though no TV series has officially won the race to be the next 'Veronica Mars,' reviving a dormant property with a fan-funded feature film, cancelled ABC dramedy 'Pushing Daisies' ranks among those leading the charge. Series creator and 'Hannibal' helmer Bryan Fuller has been vocal about the possibility of a 'Pushing Daisies' Kickstarter project, but will it prove too expensive to attempt? Find out what Bryan Fuller has to say inside!
Quite predictably, the overwhelming success (so far) of the 'Veronica Mars' movie Kickstarter has raised a plethora of questions over which TV series might look to repeat the process, and fund a movie continuing its cancelled adventures. 'The Avengers 2' director and 'Firefly' creator Joss Whedon naturally chimed in on the unlikelihood he'd attempt the same method, but could cult favorites 'Pushing Daisies' and 'Chuck' be the next to give Kickstarter a go? Those involved certainly believe so...
'Pushing Daisies' creator Bryan Fuller might have needed a bit of comfort this week, after rumors flew that NBC was dropping his oft-questioned, but wholly intriguing 'Munsters' reboot 'Mockingbird Lane.' And how better to comfort the man then by diving into new work and hanging out with friends? That's why the latest addition to Fuller's forthcoming NBC adapation of 'Hannibal' might look familiar to fans of 'Pushing Daisies,' but who exactly will Ellen Greene be playing?
