Six Feet Under to Self-Euthanize

The producer of HBO’s Six Feet Under is pulling the plug after its upcoming fifth season:

    Alan Ball, creator and executive producer of the ensemble drama starring Peter Krause, Michael C. Hall, Frances Conroy and Rachel Griffiths (news), says he feels the show has run its course.

    “Working on `Six Feet Under’ has been enormously fulfilling creatively, but if the show is about anything, it’s about the fact that everything comes to an end,” Ball said in a statement.

    ….”I will miss working with such enormously talented writers, cast, staff and crew and I’ll always be grateful to HBO for allowing and encouraging us to tell the story we set out to tell in a challenging and uncompromising way,” Ball said. [AP]

Actress Frances Conroy, who heads up the funeral parlor-proprietor Fisher family, picked up a Golden Globe in 2004, while Rachel Griffiths won a best supporting actress Globe in 2002. The show also stars Peter Krause, Michael C Hall and Lauren Ambrose.

    From Keith, the buff cop-turned-star-watcher to Brenda, the world’s most complex girlfriend, the characters that populate Six Feet Under make it one of the most engrossingly entertaining shows on television.

    Now you can take the Fishers and their friends with you anywhere — with new, downloadable pictures for your wireless phone. Say no to normalcy!
