Paramount and Anonymous Content Developing Series Based on Mortician Caitlin Doughty’s “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes”

(via Variety)

When it comes to humorously talking about death, the perspective you probably hear from the least is the mortician. Real life mortician Caitlin Doughty is changing that.

Doughty wrote a memoir about her time coming up in the mortuary business called Smoke Gets In Your Eyes & Other Lessons From The Crematory. If you’ve ever watched her Q&A web series “Ask a Mortician”, you’ll find that she’s quite cheery about talking about death and wants to dispel a lot of myths surrounding the inevitable end, probably not to the delight of someone like April Ludgate

So, Paramount and Anonymous Content are partnering up to develop a series based on her memoir, which we’d imagine is a personal workplace comedy set in a mortuary. 

We could definitely be on board for that.
