According to
The Hollywood Reporter, ABC has decided not
to order more episodes of three shows: Eli
Stone
, Dirty Sexy Money, and Pushing
Daisies
. Though the network is not using the word
"cancellation," it is highly unlikely the shows will
be back next year. This marks the end of Candice
Cayne's run as network TV's first regularly appearing
transgender actress playing a transgender character
on Money. This also leaves Marc Cherry's
Desperate Housewives, Greg Berlanti's Brothers
& Sisters,
and Silvio Horta's Ugly Betty
as shows on ABC run by gay writers.

Pushing Daisies was created by out writer Bryan
Fuller, whose last two series, Dead Like Me and
Wonderfalls, both had short runs despite
critical acclaim. Fuller heard the news from the
Reporter before he heard from the network, but
said he had been playing phone tag with executives.
He told the paper, "I'm grateful to everyone and
for everyone who brought the show to life and for the
very loyal audience that embraced us. If we are indeed
dead on ABC, we now have to convince DC Comics to let us
tell the rest of the season's story lines out in comic
book form and convince Warner Bros. features to let
Pushing Daisies live again as a movie."

Daisies is produced by Dan Jinks and Bruce
Cohen, whose film Milk will be released this
month. Jinks told The Advocate," I'm incredibly
proud to have been associated with one of the most
innovative shows that TV has seen in years. I will
miss the genius of Pushing Daisies creator Bryan
Fuller and the most talented cast of actors I've ever
known."

Greg Berlanti
served as executive producer on both Stone and
Money.
