Family Plots

Show Summary

The Groundbreaking new series FAMILY PLOTS throws open the parlor door to the inner workings of a family run mortuary. Meet the family behind one of the busiest funeral homes in Southern California. The heart of the show is the family . . . quirky and utterly likeable, yet in a setting unlike any other -- for death is their livelihood. Three beautiful sisters, their hot-blooded father, an exacting boss, a quirky funeral director and a stream of anguished patrons round out the cast of this unique show. Shonna is the Head Mortician/Embalmer who brought the rest of her family into the business. Younger sister Emily is the office manager and Funeral Director in training. Eldest sister Melissa is Assistant Funeral Director. Chuck, Funeral Assistant, body remover and amateur boxing trainer also happens to be Shonna, Melissa and Emily's father. The Boss Rick was born in a funeral home, John is the Apprentice Embalmer, and Funeral Director David's perfectionism rounds out the team. Together they deal with the business of death and their own lives in a very human way.moreless

    I find this show really funny, which I guess says a lot about me as well as the show considering it is about an extended family and some employees and friends that run a funeral home. There is sooo much drama between all the family, potential family and those they are dating and working with. Confused yet, if yes, watch the show it is great, if no, cool. Although there is drama with the workers and much comedy so the seriousness of their jobs don’t make them crack, they are always professionals when it comes to their jobs and helping people through one on the hardest times of their life. My favorite is Shonna Smith who is the head mortician.moreless

    The show is GREAT!!! It really puts a more personal take on a very sensitive subject. I think the family is just like most, they have up and downs. It is wonderful how they don\'t down play or hide their real feelings and emotions. My favortie family member has got to be Shonna. She is so no non-sense. This show is warm , funny and over-all just fabulous. I recommend everyone watch it.moreless

    Shonna is so open and hysterical although at times a little hard on her father. Chuck is the most entertaining, who knows what he is goung to do or say next. Emily is a kind soul and I really do hope she finds the happiness she is looking for. Rick is arrogant at times and even a little pathetic, but he rounds out the family wonderfully. I would like to see more of melissa, she really isn't on enough to get a better read on her.John has the hardest time in his life right now and is such a nice guy. i love his relationship with chuck. David is a definite obsessive compulsive man. But the show wouldn't be the same without him

    Together they just are a group that somehow works together and the show just wouldn't be the same without any of them as they bring out the best and worst in each other.moreless
  • I'm laughing. I can't help it.

    I am happy how these family members work together, although they are very dysfunctional. It's so funny how they gang up on their dad. I feel bad for him sometimes, but he is too soft. His feelings is hurt, but he won't show it. He always take offense to what the girls say. He should just laugh it off, and that will make them really mad. Is it me, or do these women need to get a man. I guess they are following in their moms footsteps.

    These are the most smoking people I have ever seen in my life. The other day, they were all saying they were going to stop, only to say, they won't.moreless
  • I can't believe it's not on anymore! This was a great show! I wish they would put it back on!!!

    9.5
    This is or was a great show and I hope they bring it back ASAP! It shows that all families have thier problems and we all should learn to laugh and try to get along! We don't know how long we are on this earth for!!! Please bring this show back!
