Best Funeral Ever Coming to Television

A TV show to die for? Not many of us think of funerals as something fun, but the executives at TLC are aiming to change that. According to EW.com:

The network has ordered a special/backdoor pilot, Best Funeral Ever, that goes behind-the-scenes of a unconventional funeral parlor.

 

At the Golden Gate Funeral Home, Dallas-based funeral director John Beckwith, Jr.works with the families to create a central theme for a memorial and then throws a wild party.

 

Examples include a Christmas-inspired funeral complete with reindeer, elves and snow, and a singer known for his famous rib sauce jingle remembered at a BBQ-themed funeral — including live pigs, praise dancers, and a BBQ sauce fountain where loved ones dip a ceremonious rib to say goodbye. “We’re going to make these families extremely happy at the worst moments of their lives,” Beckman says.

Well, that’s interesting. The show will air the day after Christmas, December 26 on TLC. Will you be watching? Like some other TLC shows, this just sounds like one of those shows you watch because it’s a disaster. Then again, who knows?
