Alan Ball Creating a New Series About Death


The man behind True Blood and Six Feet Under is executive producing and directing another dark comedy pilot for HBO, this one based on Charlie Huston’s 2009 crime noir novel, The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death. “Obviously death is a theme I’m fascinated by,” Ball said. The show, titled All Signs of Death, will be about "a twenty-something slacker who stumbles into a career as a crime scene cleaner ... and the dirty underbelly of LA." Based on his track record, we expect complicated characters, touching moments, and nudity! [Deadline]
