HBO’s critically-lauded TV show “Six Feet Under” is holding a marathon for the show’s fifteenth anniversary. All of its 63 episodes will be aired back to back beginning Thursday, June 2 at 11:00 p.m. until Sunday, June 5 at 12:20 p.m. on HBO 2.
The TV series ran from June 3, 2001 to Aug. 21, 2005. Created by Alan Ball, “Six Feet Under” is about a family who runs a funeral home. It stars Peter Krause, Michael C. Hall, Frances Conroy, and Lauren Ambrose, and also featured Richard Jenkins as the family’s deceased father. It also had Rachel Griffiths and Freddy Rodriguez as supporting characters.
“Six Feet Under” earned various Emmy and Golden Globes awards for drama during its run. While it tacked conventional family problems, such as infidelity, sex and religion, the series heavily dealt with death. It also was made clever use of dark humor and Alan Ball loved to add surrealism.
Its most accomplished recognition was receiving the Peabody Awards in 2002. The body described “Six Feet Under” as a “strange yet strangely familiar world.”
“I think it informed the show in a way that was very organic because the show was about people who help us to face our grief. It was pretty cathartic,” said Alan Ball about his show, per Entertainment Weekly.
Below is a teaser to the first season of “Six Feet Under.” The show is also available for streaming via Amazon Prime.
