Pushing Daisies was cancelled after two short seasons. In other words, it failed. Bryan Fuller might want to do something totally original again, but he doesn't control the money -- the Hollywood studios, and the advertisers, do -- and they've always been risk-adverse. Better to back a pre-sold property that will have a built-in audience then to back something harder to market.
Yeah, that's exactly it.

Why assume some crass commerical motive?
Because it's a business. The money is controlled by people with crass commercial motives.

How do we know that Bryan Fuller isn't simply a fan having fun with characters he adores?
Because they're not the characters he adores. They're new characters with the names of characters he adores.
