Production Description

Casting "The Undertakers," a student film for George Mason University. Synopsis: Typically, funeral homes remove confusion and stress from families in making preparations for loved ones. "The Undertakers" depicts a funeral home that does not conform to that mold. The Rodriguez Funeral Home has a well-meaning but under-performing staff that have a notorious reputation for screwing up visitations and services in hilarious, unexpected ways. In the pilot, The Rodriguez Funeral Home welcomes their new hire, Pete, and tries to meet a family’s request for a “festive, not depressing” visitation atmosphere.
