chenoweth_kristen-121908According to Kristin Chenoweth, who starred in the now-canceled ABC series Pushing Daisies, series creator Bryan Fuller has an idea for a movie that would wrap up a lot of the unanswered questions of the TV show:

“It would wrap up a lot of the unanswered questions that people will have once they finally air our final episodes,” the singer-actress told TVGuide.com.

If the movie gets the go-ahead, Chenoweth says that she would take part and believes her fellow castmembers would as well:

“I’m sure that Bryan Fuller wouldn’t do it without the six main characters,” she said. “Paul Reubens was a big part of it — we have certain guest stars that are standouts that we’d want back. But he has such a great idea for it. … We all want to.”

abclogo-513ABC has decided to order more episodes of Life on Mars, but has decided not to pick up Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money and Eli Stone.

The network hasn’t officially canceled the three shows, however, leaving open the possibility of ordering new episodes in the future, although that seems very unlikely. All three shows remain on the schedule for the time being.

Life on Mars, meanwhile, which received an order for four more hours, bringing its first year to a full 17 episodes, will be put go on hiatus starting December 11th, when Private Practice moves into its time period. Mars returns with new episodes January 28th at 10pm, airing after Lost (which premieres its new season the preceding week).

And finally, ABC has set a premiere date for Scrubs. The former NBC series that the network picked up after it was canceled will premiere Tuesday, January 6th at 9pm. with back-to-back episodes for two weeks, before settling into its regular time slot at 9:30pm.
