I was transfixed during the premiere of Pushing Daisies last night -- the show is just awesome. It was created by Bryan Fuller, who also co-created the series Wonderfalls -- where we were introduced to today's featured man.
Lee Pace plays Ned, a man who discovers as a child a most unusual gift... he can bring the dead back to life with a single touch! But there are unavoidable caveats in place (such as how touching that revived person or thing again will return them - permanently - to rest.) As you can imagine, this causes a wrinkle when he revives his sweetheart with whom he shared his first kiss.
