But the episode was never made and instead, Bryan Fuller developed the idea into the story of Ned the Pie-Maker in 'Pushing Daisies'.
Last night, however, he finally gave us a link between the shows as Ned got a job at Betty's Bees by intercepting a call to the Happy Time Temp Agency.
Happy Time Temporary Services was the company where "Millie" (George's post-death identity) worked in Seattle. The city in which 'Pushing Daisies' takes place has never been identified, but it's not too far from Coeur d'Coeurs (Ned's hometown).
Wherever it is, I don't think it's Seattle, so the Happy Time Temporary Services must be a national franchise.
And now we can claim that both TV series are linked!
