London-based indie prodco Chalkboard’s latest docuseries is heading to Sky One.

My Wonderful Life (4 x 60) was commissioned by Sky in 2015 and produced over a two year period. It focuses on the emotionally charged ‘legacy’ aspect of terminal illness and allows people with life-limiting conditions to record messages and arrange gifts and surprises for their loved ones, which will be delivered after they’re gone.

Dying Matters, a coalition of organizations that encourages people to talk about dying, death and bereavement, provided feedback on the production.

My Wonderful Life premieres on Sky One and Sky UK-owned online streaming service Now TV on Feb. 15.

My Wonderful Life was ordered by Sky’s commissioning editor for arts and entertainment, Marvyn Benoit. Mike Benson is the executive producer for Chalkboard with Warwick Banks is series editor.
