Best Funeral Ever: Actually Coming to TLC!
You may wanna duck, Honey Boo Boo. The bar for reality television has just been dropped once again.
TLC announced today plans to air Best Funeral Ever, a program that will focus on the uniquely-themed ceremonies organized by the Golden Gate Funeral Home in Dallas.
“A home-going is much different than a funeral, it’s a celebration," Golden Gate CEO John Beckwith Jr. says of his company's methods. "The Golden Gate experience is our version of the traditional African American home-going celebration. We do not produce generic funerals; everybody’s experience has to be different.”
Examples of such home-goings include: a barbecue-inspired event; a holiday celebration with elves; and an amusement park-anchored event that includes rides and games.
Best Funeral Ever premieres on December 26 and will be turned into a series if the ratings are there. Why do we somehow have no doubt they will be?
In other reality show news, The CW has given the green light to a Hunger Games-like series titled The Hunt.
