From Alan Ball, the Oscar winning writer of American Beauty, comes a series that digs where others fear to tread. Whether dealing with the family funeral parlor business, personal issues, or each other, the Fisher family, made up of mother Ruth, sons Nate and David, and daughter Claire, go through it all together, making all 5 seasons of Six Feet Under some of the most compelling television ever. Includes 63 episodes of the landmark HBO series!
The HBO television series SIX FEET UNDER, about the members of a dynamic Los Angeles family that operates the Fisher and Sons Funeral Home, has an ironically grim but intriguing premise: each episode is based on the story behind the death of the family's latest client. A sassy drama rife with black comedy, SIX FEET UNDER follows other HBO hit series like SEX IN THE CITY, THE SOPRANOS, and OZ. Alan Ball created the hit series after scoring a huge success with his original screenplay for AMERICAN BEAUTY. The entire series of the show is included here.
