View Full Version : IGN: Six Writers Who Could Fix Things

Definitely though the most hilarious suggestion was the writer/producer from the 4400...
But then again, their points for suggesting him made it seem like a good choice.
Excellent choices. If Heroes could snag 2-4 of those guys, I think they'd be sitting pretty. A Rebirth wouldn't be far behind.
"I am exclusive to 'Daisies' through the delivery of the 13th episode of our 13-episode order, which will be mid-January," Fuller said. "If 'Daisies' isn't picked up by then, I will definitely be going back to play with my friends at 'Heroes.'"

If they got Fuller back, I would be extraordinarily happy. I would also love to see Heroes snag Jeffrey Bell or Jane Espenson, or any of the Buffyverse writers, for that matter. And, while I'd love to see Brian K. Vaughan come along and save the show, he's doing great work on Lost, where I'd like to see him stay until the end of the sixth season.

Yah I'd be thrilled with this stuff, I wouldn't mind that for sure.

Fuller has already said if Pushing Daisies is cancelled, he's coming back to Heroes. It came straight from his own mouth:
Exclusive: 'Pushing Daisies' creator Bryan Fuller says he might return to 'Heroes'

In the wake of coexecutive producers Jeph Loeb and Jesse Alexander getting fired from Heroes, online fans have been crying out for former Heroes writer (and Pushing Daisies creator) Bryan Fuller to rejoin the show. Apparently, somebody is listening. Fuller told EW.com that he's open to a comeback. "I am exclusive to Daisies through the delivery of the 13th episode of our 13-episode order, which will be mid-January," says Fuller. "If Daisies isn't picked up by then, I will definitely be going back to play with my friends at Heroes."
It seems unlikely that ABC will pick up more episodes of the critically-beloved Daisies; the show is currently ranked at No. 64 and attracts a mere 6.14 million viewers. NBC-Universal could score major points with its ever-impatient fans if the network rehired Fuller, who not only wrote for Heroes in its first season but was responsible for "Company Man" — an episode widely hailed as the series' best single hour (the episode's unusual single-character focus is frequently cited as the model the series should follow going forward).
An insider tells EW that it's unlikely Alexander and Loeb — who, by many accounts, have served as defacto show runners whenever creator Tim Kring was preoccupied with other aspects of the show's complicated production schedule — will be replaced this season. If Fuller were to rejoin Heroes, it would likely be as a consultant since his value as a show creator is big in Hollywood. Besides Daisies, Fuller is responsible for creating Dead Like Me for Showtime and the critically-beloved Wonderfalls for Fox. Stay tuned. (Michael Ausiello contributed to this report)

Sorry for the double post but we may be getting our wish.
ABC just announced that Lost would be premiering January 21st at 8PM on Wednesdays, the same time Pushing Daisies usually airs. Of course, it probably won't stay there (that's when American Idol airs on Fox), but that's not a good sign for Daisies fans either.

lol i was going to make a thread about this. i was mad when i read through and i didnt see Joss hedon but i read the disclaimer of how he might be to busy for it anyway after going through the whole list. I know i suggest Joss for everything but he should right at least the first 4-5 episodes of volume 4 to give it a good direction.
I highly doubt Joss would go write on another creators show. At least not full-time. In television, Joss likes doing his own stuff. Plus he is knee-deep in Dollhouse right now, which I cant possibly be any more excited about.

I'd want Joss Whedon to stay far far far away from Heroes.
11-07-2008, 09:20 PM
I like Joss but I don't want him on heroes.
Even though he'll have some free time once Dollhouse is cancelled next year(Friday death slot)

I'd rather have Whedon make his own superhero show... than try to save Kring's ass.
11-08-2008, 10:14 PM
Why would you not want him on Heroes?
I just don't.
Don't see whats wrong with the 4400. I'd like to see the guy on there. Sadly he can't, he's reworking a remake of V.
I'm not sure one writer could save heroes... I'd prefer two or three...

I like the Trek guy. Although his episodes of DS9 were more about drama and dialogue than scifi. But they were quality episodes.
