Call it disrespectful, funny or just plain strange.
TLC’s newest docudrama, Best Funeral Ever, may be all of those things rolled into one. The hourlong special could produce a full series, if the audience likes it. Best Funeral Ever chronicles the employees of the Dallas-based Golden Gate Funeral Home as they plan extravagant “home-going celebrations” for the dead.
Owner John Beckwith Jr. says, “If [the deceased] wanted to dunk a basketball, we can make that happen.”
