EXCLUSIVE: TV Tonight hears that quirky US drama Pushing Daisies and dramedy Chuck have been on-sold by Channel Nine.
The shows, both promised by Nine for 2008, will now air on another broadcaster -very possibly Foxtel.
Daisies was even plugged by the network as part of a free DVD giveaway in newspapers earlier this year, as a bright new hope for 2009.
Now the shows are considered too niche for the network.
Nine has previously on-sold other shows including The OC, The West Wing and Gossip Girl -which ironically has a summer screening coming after it has aired on FOX8. Three shows (OC, Chuck and Gossip Girl) are from creator Josh Schwartz. Seems he just doesn’t fit with Nine!
Pushing Daisies has also just been cancelled in the US.
