Another African-American owned St. Louis business is making its way to reality television.

In two weeks, William C. Harris Funeral Home will join Sweetie Pie’s on the small screen with the organization is featured in a six part series “Funeral Boss” which will air on Discovery Fit &Health beginning March 14th.

This show introduces CEO and patriarch Bill Harris, an expert in the funeral industry and the heart and soul behind this family business. A perfectionist, he insists on running the business a certain way - his way, but with three sons and a daughter working for him, he's hoping to pass that dedication on to the next generation.

Despite the hustle and high drama, one thing they all agree on is that the funeral business with its constant focus on the grief of loss and the celebration of life is intense, emotional and about as high-pressure as any industry can get. Each episode documents the Harris clan as they help new families on the emotional journey of saying goodbye to a loved one.

The show is produced by High Noon Entertainment in association with Coolfire Originals Media for Discovery Fit & Health.

FUNERAL BOSS premieres on the Discovery Fit & Health Network on Thursday, March 14 at 9 p.m. CST. Check local listings and/or for more information.

    Someone was watching your reality show in the southern part of the country and called me to tell me a show was on that they thought I would like. My late brother was a mortician and as a musician I played for many funerals. Personally I do not watch many reality shows but I was so very impressed with the business skills of the father and most importantly his requirement that his children and employees respect him as a person, a CEO and that they respect the clients while also respecting themselves. This is a lesson that is not always taught to children and they seem to think they can love without respect and later find themselves in relationships where they too are neither respected nor know how to give respect.
