Dead Art

Everyone has had problems with their neighbors at one time or another. It's bad enough when you're renting, but when you've invested in a little plot of your own, unruly associates can be the death of you. But there's one place where poets and artists quietly rub elbows with the elite of the business world, or even with paupers.

Everyone has had problems with their neighbors at one time or another. It’s bad enough when you’re renting, but when you’ve invested in a little plot of your own, unruly associates can be the death of you. But there’s one place where poets and artists quietly rub elbows with the elite of the business world, or even with paupers. That’s in the cemetery, the final community to which most will belong. And, befitting the final markers many leave behind, graves are often works of art, architectural marvels that bespeak fascinating histories and remarkable stories. If every life is a story, graveyards are the world’s libraries, full of fascinating tomes waiting to be discovered.

In the HD series Dead Art, viewers will be transported to cemeteries to hear fantastic stories and witness incredible works of art meant to celebrate the final act of the human drama. The series is hosted by Dee Snider, and will take viewers to Paris, London, New York City, New Orleans, Hollywood, Prague, Mexico City, Sleepy Hollow (New York) and Boston.
