From Bryan Fuller ("Heroes") and Barry Sonnenfeld ("Men in Black") comes an unprecedented blend of romance, crime procedural and high-concept fantasy in a forensic fairytale about a young man with a very special gift. Once upon a time, a mild-mannered boy named Ned realized he could touch dead things and bring them back to life. Grown-up Ned (Lee Pace) puts his ability to good use, not only touching dead fruit and making it ripe with everlasting flavor, but working with an investigator (Chi McBride) to crack murder cases by asking the deceased to name their killers. But the tale gets complicated, as all tales do, when Ned brings his childhood sweetheart, Chuck (Anna Friel), back from the dead and keeps her alive. Chuck encourages him to use his power to help others, instead of merely solving mysteries and collecting the rewards. Life would be perfect for Ned and Chuck, except for one cruel twist: If he ever touches her again, she'll go back to being dead, this time for good. Rounding out the cast are Kristin Chenoweth as Ned's oddly spiritual co-worker and admirer, and Ellen Greene and Swoozie Kurtz as Chuck's reclusive, synchronized swimming aunts.
