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 http://health.discovery.com/ for more information.
