The offbeat drama tells the story of Ned, a pie maker who has the unique ability of being able to bring back the dead with the touch of his finger. But with that comes the downside that he can’t touch anybody without popping them off too.
The series, which has attracted good ratings and reviews, bursts with more colour than Ugly Betty.
It is created by Bryan Fuller (Dead Like Me and Wonderfalls).
Others in the cast include Chi McBride, Swoosie Kurtz, Ellen Greene, Kristin Chenoweth and Jim Dale as Narrator.
Filmmaker Barry Sonnenfeld who directed Men in Black, The Addams Family and Get Shorty is one of the producers.
