Are you or someone you know in need of a fresh perspective? Is it time to finally de-clutter and take the next step for a major life change? Have you had a medical scare or a midlife crisis? Downsizing, retiring or changing jobs?
If you answered yes, The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleansing wants to cast you!
An open casting call is now available for the new TV series, created by Parks and recreation’s Amy Poehler and the team behind weird eye. The show strives to bring together a horde of contestants from the Kansas City area.
The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleansing documentary series is based on a Swedish tradition and Margareta Magnusson’s bestseller, in which people – with help – have the opportunity to organize themselves, address themselves and get rid of things they no longer need. Swedish Death Cleansing allows families a sensitive approach to confronting and discussing sensitive topics, especially around end-of-life issues.
The process of eliminating things that would disappear when you die can actually be done at any stage of life. Is it liberating? We’re not sure, but we’ve dreamed of attending our own funerals before, so maybe that’s a bit like that? But with an organized life? Swedes know darkness, so we’ll take their word for it.
