Best Funeral Ever Reality Show Coming to TLC

TLC is doing for funerals what MTV did for sweet sixteen parties with the upcoming Best Funeral Ever. The show will premiere as a special on December 26, according to EW, and if it does well could be turned into a series, which is TLC's usual MO. BFE follows the employees and clients of Dallas's Golden Gate Funeral Home, where you can get a barbeque-themed coffin if that's your thing. (Really. Or you can have a boxing-themed sendoff, as pictured.) Golden Gate focuses on home-going ceremonies in addition to the more staid, typical bummerzone funerals, so expect more dancing and less incense. New York's hottest club is funerals, etc.
