One of our favorite grim channels (and I LOVE grim channels) is Caitlin Doughty’s Ask A Mortician, which we featured on our fleeting weekend series YouTube Treasure Hunter. Well now, it will also be grim television. Yup, Ask A Mortician is heading to your TV set, courtesy of Evan Dunsky, who co-created the hit show Nurse Jackie.

“Writing a memoir is such a private, personal experience that it’s intimidating to think of adapting it for television,” Doughty said in a comment to The A.V. Club. “But everyone involved…has been so open, collaborative and intelligent through this process. It’s obvious they get me and they get the book.”

It’s still early to start asking if it’s gonna be more like Six Feet Under, Tales From the Crypt or Forensic Files, but as long as we get some good morbid content, we’re gonna be happy.
