"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" may be about to lose its crown as most-ridiculed show on television. That's because The Learning Channel (TLC), the same network behind Honey Boo Boo and other cultural landmarks such as "Cake Boss" and "Extreme Couponing," is launching a new show based around a funeral home.
EW reports that "Best Funeral Ever" will air on Dec. 26 as a one-time special. It will go behind the scenes of the Golden Gate Funeral Home in Dallas, a truly, well, unique funeral home. If the show gets strong enough ratings, it's expected to be picked up as a full-time series.
Golden Gate's funeral director, John Beckwith, helps each family plan an unconventional service followed by what he calls a "wild party." Some funerals have included a BBQ-themed memorial—featuring a BBQ sauce fountain—and one held inside a boxing ring.
In the past, Yahoo News has reported on other extravagant funeral options, including a $35,000 gold-plated coffin. But this is the first we've heard of a funeral home creating scenarios where the deceased can (kind of) slam dunk a basketball, which Beckwith says is another one of its potential services.
"We do not have generic funerals," Beckwith tells a family attending a memorial planning session. "Everybody's experience has to be different."
In a clip for the show, Beckwith says that Golden Gate's services are based on the tradition of homegoing funerals, which have their roots in the African-American community and are constructed as a more vibrant and positive occasion than some traditional funerals.
"We're going to make these families extremely happy at the worst moments of their lives," Beckwith told EW.
