News   Greene Sings and Sieber Debuts on Nov. 21 "Pushing Daisies"
Christopher Sieber — seen on Broadway in Monty Python's Spamalot — guest stars with Paul Reubens on ABC's "Pushing Daisies" Nov. 21.

An ABC synopsis for the episode, entitled "Smell of Success," reads: "When the assistant to renowned scent expert Napoleon LeNez (Sieber) is found dead after a scratch 'n' sniff book explodes, Ned, Chuck and Emerson investigate whom the deadly missive was intended for. Meanwhile, Olive continues her campaign to get Aunts Lily and Vivian back in the swim of things."

The show will also feature guest stars Reubens ("Pee Wee's Big Adventure," "Blow"), Tim Conlon and Sarah Jayne Jensen (Wonderful Town).

Ellen Greene, the Little Shop of Horrors star who portrays series regular Vivian, gets the chance to display her vocal skills during the Nov. 21 episode. Greene recently told that she will perform a Cat Stevens song toward the end of the hour-long program.

Christopher Sieber originated the roles of Sir Dennis Galahad/ The Black Knight/Prince Herbert's Father on Broadway in the Eric Idle-created musical Spamalot. Other stage credits for the actor include Into the Woods, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Triumph of Love, Chicago, Avow, The Boys in the Band and Beauty and the Beast. He was previously seen on the ABC comedy "It's All Relative" and the NBC pilot "Wildlife." *

Bryan Fuller ("Heroes," "Wonderfalls") created the new hour-long series "Pushing Daisies," which plays Wednesdays at 8 PM (ET). (Check local listings.)

Tony Award winners Kristin Chenoweth and Swoosie Kurtz as well as fellow stage actors Lee Pace, Anna Friel and Ellen Greene appear in the series. Jim Dale provides the show's narration.

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."

Raúl Esparza (Company) recently appeared as a guest star and returns Nov. 28 opposite Molly Shannon and Michael White. Other stage alum to have played on the series include Barbara Barrie and Hamish Linklater.
