U.S. cable network Discovery Fit & Health will begin airing a reality series about a family-run funeral home next month.

The Funeral Boss follows Bill Harris (pictured above), the perfectionist CEO of the Harris Family Funeral Home, and his three sons and daughter as they help families say goodbye to loved ones and balance the demands of their profession with family concerns.

The six-part series was produced by High Noon Entertainment with Coolfire Originals Media. It will premiere on March 14 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

Earlier this year TLC aired the one-off special Best Funeral Ever, about a Dallas funeral home that stages festive thematic celebrations for its clients.
