A&E to Explore Death in New Series

5/12/2006 5:36 AM Eastern

The process of death and dying will be the theme of two new A&E Network pilots currently in development.

The first series, Last Requests (working title), will assist people in finding true emotional closure before they die, while Six Months will focus on the actions of people who are living out the last part of their lives.

"These programs present potent and powerful reflections of the human condition," A&E senior vice president of nonfiction and alternative programming Nancy Dubuc said in a prepared statement. "With Last Requests and Six Months, we are able to present two distinct approaches to a topic that is tremendously difficult to face, but one that can also lead families to an extraordinarily inspirational moment in time."
