Pushing Hackney

06 December, 2013

The other day I found myself catching up on one of my favourite shows, Pushing Daises. A short-lived surreal American TV show set around a man called Ned who owns a pie shop and uses his power to bring back the dead to solve their murders.

The plot is a little convoluted but one thing that about the show that is easy to explain is the show's amazing visual design. Masterfully headed by Bryan Fuller, the set design, costumes and cinematography make watching the show feel like you're being immersed in a hyperactive, adult storybook re-imagined by Wes Anderson and Tim Burton.
