A Look at Black Chicago in the 1970s

The Atlantic’s In Focus blog is doing a great photo series on America in the early 1970s. Last week they took a look at documentary photographer John H. White, who went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Photojournalism in 1982. Here’s a quick look at the series, and you can see the whole thing over at The Atlantic.

If you were a fan of the 2007 ABC series Pushing Daisies, then it’s time to rejoice! Even after its unfair cancelation by ABC, it looks like the series is coming back in another form.

Pushing Daisies show creator Bryan Fuller has announced that he’s hoping to bring the cast back for a project or two.

Fuller states in the interview, “I’ve had conversations very recently with Barry Sonnenfeld about financing a film, and with Kristin Chenoweth and Warner Brothers about developing a stage musical.”

Additionally, Fuller said that some sort of revival is also on its way: “We’re working on something that is definitely a Pushing Daisies revival, and the idea would be to have as many cast as we can to participate in it.”
