Description

When death is your business, what is your life? For Nate, David, Ruth and Claire, the world outside the Fisher & Sons Funeral Home continues to be at least as challenging — and far less predictable — as the one inside. HBO presents Season 2 of the hit drama series that takes a darkly comic look at members of a dysfunctional L.A. family running an independent funeral home. With owner/patriarch Nathaniel Fisher no longer alive (except in the hearts and sometime visions of his family), his survivors — wife Ruth, sons Nate and David, and daughter Claire — continue to cope with the tricky business of looking to the future while being constantly reminded of the past. What emerges over the course of 13 episodes 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.
