Channel Nine won’t be airing the ABC dramedy Pushing Daisies until December.
The offbeat series about a humble piemaker with the ability to bring people back from the dead with a touch of the finger, is considered too niche for primetime viewing in the ratings season.
Its airing will be ten months after Nine released the first episode on a preview DVD in News Limited newspapers.
In February, Nine dubbed the show, “2008’s Hottest New Series.”
Meanwhile, Chuck, which has recently been renewed for a full series is also pencilled in for December.
