Originally, 'Pushing Daisies' was envisioned as an episode of 'Dead Like Me', in which George would have kept taking souls from people about to die only to have somebody else come along and bring them back to life.

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!
