I think death is a subject that hasn’t been explored properly on TV and am convinced that with the right experts there’s a way of creating a show that is sensitive and informative – but highly watch-able. For example: Louis Theroux at a planning your funeral evening; Channel 4’s ‘The Family’ making a will (you can just see it, can't you?); celebrities/pop stars/politicians talking about what song they’d play at their funeral (I'd watch!), etc.
The key, of course, is to find the experts with the x-pert factor – embalmers, funeral directors, celebrants, financial advisors, will makers, etc – who can bring the subject to life.
So if you know any, please send them my way!
