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.

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 .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
