Maybe the most unlikely reality show, Family Plots has a cast of characters even Shakespeare couldn't have dreamed-up. The funeral home is owned by Rick who somehow managed to hire 3 sisters and their dad to work for him. Rick is best friends with Shonna the mortician who is high-strung and really cares about her work. Her sister Emily is the office manager and is sweet, low-key and given to tears. The other sister, Melissa, was engaged to Rick, broke up with him, but still works at the mortuary. Melissa is full of herself and seems to think she is a real catch. I don't see it. It's funny to see how the three of them can be so different.
Father of the three girls Chuck is quite a character and buts heads with Rick all the time. Shonna has to constantly watch after him to make sure he stays in line.
Dark humor is alive and well with this bunch.
