SHOWTIME® DOCUMENTARY SERIES TIME OF DEATH
TO PREMIERE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1st AT 9PM ET/PT
Six-Part Series from Award-Winning Magical Elves Production Team To Spotlight Remarkable People Facing the End Stage of Life
LOS ANGELES, CA (September 18, 2013) – The new SHOWTIME six-part documentary series TIME OF DEATH will premiere on Friday, November 1 at 9:00 PM ET/PT and run for six consecutive weeks. The series will take an unflinching, in-depth look at some remarkable individuals facing their own imminent mortality. Cameras will follow brave, terminally ill individuals as they live out their final days, supported by family, friends, healthcare teams and hospice workers, who gently help guide the process.
From executive producers Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz of the Magical Elves production team (Top Chef, Fashion Star, The Real L Word®), TIME OF DEATH weaves together these complex, unforgettable stories into an affecting portrait: a single mother of three with Stage IV breast cancer; a grandmother with inoperable pancreatic cancer who is also a psychotherapist who specializes in the field of death and dying; a veteran with a rare cancer facing the end with his parents beside him; and a young woman with Stage IV melanoma, among other profiles. Each unique, emotionally resonant tale will serve as a tangible, hopeful reminder of the finite nature of time and mortality.
