Best Funeral EverWe should have known that “The Sisterhood,” a reality series following preachers’ wives in Atlanta and “All My Babies Mamas,” following self-proclaimed rapper Shawty Lo and his, well, babies’ mamas, would be the gateway to ignorance beyond our wildness imagination.

But even we could not have imagined funerals.

Featuring pigs, barbeque ribs, dancing, shouting, wailing, boxing rings and even a disco ball, the culture of  “traditional” home-goings in the Black community is coming to reality television.

“These are families who have lost loved ones. So there is never any disrespect with these type of homegoing celebrations,” said John Beckwith Jr., CEO of the Golden Gate Funeral Home.

The show follows the funeral home, which has been in business for over 30 years, as it fulfills the family’s last wishes for their loveD ones. According to Beckwith, each service can cost up to $40,000.

This is not the first time that the inner-workings of undertaking have been featured on reality television. Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks turned her passion for the funeral business into another career path when she joined forces with Willie Watkins Funeral Home, the premiere funeral home in Atlanta.

“Best Funeral Ever” airs Sunday, Jan. 6 at 10 p.m. on TLC.
