'Six Feet Under' site goes beyond the grave

NEW YORK : Life. Death. Guilt. Afterlife. The daily routine for the Fisher family can involve some grave issues, especially when it comes to running the family's grief management business. 

As the third season of the Emmy winning HBO series kicks off in the US on 2 March, Six Feet Under fans can get an in depth look at the lives of the show's complex characters and the making of the critically-acclaimed original series on the official Six Feet Under web site at

In India, the show is all set to debut on Zee English next month. The site has come up with experimental features that allow fans to go behind the scenes, exploring the intimate lives of the principal characters. One can see the new episodes through the eyes of creators and crew members in Post Mortem interviews. Taking a metaphysical pit-stop with the Fishers, examining the nooks and crannies of the Six Feet Under subconscious at The Wake are some features offered. In addition, one can access the real story on the victims of every opening sequence by reading detailed obituaries.

After each new Sunday night episode, will feature a Post Mortem interview with post-show analysis by directors, writers, producers, special effects people, the show's mortuary advisor and much more. Fans will learn how the show's costume designer, Jill Ohanneson, gets clothes purchased from Walmart or Sears to have "that patina of feeling like it's part of someone's closet." Or discover how Alan Ball's examination of physics led him to the overall theme for season three.

After the 2 March premiere episode a site section The Wake will feature a unique montage of video moments, images and dialogue that give viewers a voyeuristic peek inside the characters thoughts and motivations. The most devoted viewers will even find a few "Easter Eggs" hidden in Wake episodes every week featuring personal tidbits such as text messages or journal entries from their favourite characters.

It remains to be seen though whether the dramatic irony and dark, situational humour of the show jells with the Indian viewer.
