Just as Michael Kinsley predicted more than 20 years ago, there will be a Funeral Channel!
Replays of the departing ceremonies for JFK, Mother Theresa, Princess Di, Mickey Mantle, and so on will fill a niche that few knew existed.
A few years after its founding, the channel will branch out into original programming — reality programs about morticians, grave digging, and the burial customs of other nations and eras. One show in particular will hit it big, a criminal science show that uses the autopsy to recreate, in a dramatization, the way the person died. Eventually, the channel will rebrand as Grim.
