Catch a Sneak Peak of "Pushing Daisies" ... in a Cemetery

Still haven't seen the highly anticipated fall series Pushing Daisies?

If you haven't and live in LA (or are conveniently situated to drive to said locale), ABC is hosting a sneak preview screening of the pilot for forensic fairy tale Pushing Daisies next week.

Fittingly, the Pushing Daisies event will take place at Hollywood Forever cemetery, which--if you've never been there--is the perfect place for a late night summer film. Select members of the cast and crew will be hand to introduce the event, which promises to be highly entertaining.

Details below for the Pushing Daisies screening.

What: Pushing Daisies Sneak Peek

When: Thursday, August 16th at 8 pm

Where: Hollywood Forever Cemetery
6000 Santa Monica Blvd.
Hollywood, CA 90038

Trust me, this is one event you don't want to miss. And, if that weren't enough incentive, ABC promises "special treats" for some attendees. Hmmm, pie perhaps?

I haven't seen the pilot yet and this sounds like fun. I live in Santa Barbara so will probably drive in during the afternoon. Do events like these fill up pretty quickly?

That is very cool!

But wah - I will be out of town.

I am so there. Sounds like a blast.

@Geek Chick. I would recommend getting there very early for this. The movie screenings always get really full really fast and the line of cars waiting to enter the cemetery tends to start getting very long more than an hour before it is supposed to start. So get there early and bring a picnic blanket and something to eat.

Jace,
Having already seen the pilot, and being lucky enough to having got my hands on a copy, I still won't pass up the opportunity to watch it in a cemetary! I've been wanting to check out a screening in the Hollywood Forever for a while, and this is something I can't pass up.
Now if only I can find some friends to come along, since the wife will be out of town.
One more thing, Is it best to bring camping chairs or just a blanket to lie on?

This is such a great idea! I've been to one screening at Hollywood Forever and it was so much fun. And what a perfect place to show Pushing Daisies. I'm sure it will be crazy, though, so I definitely recommend getting there early and, Cinemaniac, you can bring camping chairs and that may be more comfortable.

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season
