The final three episodes of the critically acclaimed, but now canceled ABC series "Pushing Daisies," which features a host of theatre favorites, will be screened by The Paley Center for Media in Hollywood April 19.

The afternoon, which is simply titled "The Unaired 'Pushing Daisies' with Bryan Fuller," will begin at 1 PM at Cinerama Dome at ArcLight Hollywood.

Series creator Fuller will be on hand to introduce the screening of the three unaired episodes of "Daisies," which are titled "Window Dressed to Kill," "Water and Power" and "Kerplunk."

According to celebrated actress Ellen Greene, who co-stars in the series, ABC will air the show's final episodes on three consecutive Saturdays, starting May 30 at 10 PM ET. The show's second season will also arrive on DVD July 21.

Billed as a "blend of romance, fantasy and mystery," "Pushing Daisies" follows a "forensic fairytale about Ned, a young man with a very special gift," according to a show description. "As a young boy Ned discovers that he can return the dead briefly back to life with just one touch. But his random gift isn't without deadly consequences… as he soon finds out."

Lee Pace (Small Tragedy, The Guardians) stars as Ned opposite Anna Friel (original star of Closer) and Chi McBride ("Boston Public," "The Nine"). Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked, The Apple Tree) plays a featured role along with fellow stage stars Greene (Little Shop of Horrors, Side Man) and Swoosie Kurtz (Frozen, Fifth of July). Jim Dale (The Threepenny Opera) provides the show's narration. For more information visit www.paleycenter.org.
