This visually stunning and Emmy-winning forensic fairytale follows Ned (Lee Pace), a pie maker who, as a boy, found he could return the dead briefly to life with one touch. But his random gift isn’t without complications and deadly consequences. For every life he brings back, something in the vicinity of “similar value” must drop dead to maintain balance and order.
In order to save his financially troubled restaurant, The Pie Hole, Ned agrees to work with private investigator Emerson Cod (Chi McBride), using his ability to help solve mysteries. He manages to keep it all a secret from his employee, Olive (Kristen Chenoweth).
Things get truly interesting when Ned rescues his childhood sweetheart, Charlotte “Chuck” Charles (Anna Friel), from death. Now Ned and Chuck must keep her identity a secret, particularly from her two eccentric aunts who raised her, Vivian (Ellen Greene) and Lily (Swoosie Kurtz).
Created by Bryan Fuller and starring Lee Pace, Anna Friel, Kristin Chenoweth, Chi McBride, Ellen Greene, and Swoosie Kurtz.
