Curtains down for HBO series 'Six Feet Under'

MUMBAI: The fifth season of the critically acclaimed HBO series Six Feet Under came to an end on 21 August with a futuristic montage depicting the manners in which each of the family would meet his end.

If the 60 episode show often opened with stark death sequences, the series final opened with a birth. Then the show took a dramatic turn when end part of the final episode segued into a montage that revealed each character's final moments in life.

While an elderly Ruth died in bed in 2025, Keith, who married David, met with a tragic end in 2029. David's end came in the company of Keith's ghost in 2044. Brenda died in the company of her rother Billy in 2051. Finally, Claire, the youngest member of the family, passed away alone in bed in 2085 at the age of 102.

Over the five season's, Six Feet Under won seven Emmys in 32 nominations. In the upcoming 57th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards to be held next month, the show has five nominations including the Best Drama Series prize and the Best Actress in a Drama Series honor.

A breakout hit for HBO, Six Feet Under was created, co-written and executive produced by Alan Ball, who wrote the hit film American Beauty, winner of five Oscars including Best Picture and Original Screenplay (Ball). Last year, the Producers Guild of America honored Ball and fellow SFU Executive Producers Alan Poul, Robert Greenblatt and David Janollari with the Norman Pelton Producer of the Year Award in Episodic Television - Drama.

The fourth season of Six Feet Under will be released on DVD this week.
