There's a potential resurrection in the works for Pushing Daisies.

Pushing Daisies' creator Bryan Fuller hinted at a possible Broadway musical future for the short-lived and beloved series about a man whose touch can bring people back to the dead... and kill them all over again. The sweet, quirky show may have been deemed too bizarre for network TV, but hey, theater fans eat that stuff up -- after all, Carrie: The Musical was a thing.

While we could not be happier that semi-stalker/inappropriate serenade-er Michael Swift got dumped for good on Smash, it looks like actor Will Chase won't be off TV next season, after all. The actor will guest star on Necessary Roughness as a "rock god" who will seek Dr. Dani's help on lingering issues. We're just hoping that we won't hear him sing that metal version of "Grenade" again...

Supernatural has cast Ty Olsson of Battlestar Galatica as a new vampire who will help Dean bust out of purgatory. This is the actor's second time playing a vampire on the show, as he originally had a small role as vamp Eli in Season 2, but clearly we're supposed to forget all about that. What, was one of the many staked members of The Vampire Diaries not available?

"Shows about the mafia have been popular in the past... Grey's Anatomy is still on TV... combining the two would make one super un-cancellable show!" That's basically the concept behind Mob Doctor, Fox's new fall series about a surgeon who owes a debt to the mafia. Fringes' Kevin Corrigan has been cast in a recurring role on the series as a who prefers the "business" side of the mafia. Since Corrigan always looks sort of sketchy to us, he'll probably fit in pretty well.

The Lying Game is set to return this winter with a few new faces added to the cast. Ryan Rottman of 90210 will guest star as a handsome newcomer from California with a some questionable motives and (shocker!) a secret agenda. The real surprise is that the show has managed to cast someone who looks even older than the supposed teenager/ultimate brooder Ethan, but whatever.

TLC's got a new show about ex-baseball legend Pete Rose and his way-too-young-for-him wife, model Kiana Kim. The show will follow the disgraced baseball player (who was banned from the game due to gambling on the sport during his time as manager of the Cincinnati Reds) and his newly-blended family as they go about their daily lives. Kind of like anything with the Kardashians, but even less relevant.
