When death is your business, what is your life? For the Fisher family, the world outside of their family-owned funeral home continues to be at least as challenging as—and far less predictable than—the one inside. From Oscar(R)-winning screenwriter Alan Ball (American Beauty) comes this drama series that takes a darkly comic look at a dysfunctional L.A. family that runs a funeral business. As prodigal elder son Nate Fisher returns home for the holidays to news of his father's death, the family must learn to deal with the death of one of their own—while figuring out how to go ahead with the business of living. What emerges throughout Season One is a quirky, funny, emotional, life-affirming look at the enlightenment of a grieving American family…that happens to be in the grief-management business. Peter Krause, Frances Conroy, Michael C. Hall, Lauren Ambrose and Rachel Griffiths star.
