NBCUniversal (NBCU) streamer Peacock has ordered a new unscripted original series, based on the best seller by Margareta Magnusson.
The Gentle Art Of Swedish Death Cleaning is described as a “transformation series” that will feature people who are at a major crossroads and need to get their houses and lives in order.
A Swedish ‘death cleaner’ will help organise and demystify homes, lives, and relationships, allowing people to prepare for death while they enjoy life.
It has been created by US-based Scout Productions and Amy Poehler’s Paper Kite Productions.
Rod Aissa, EVP of unscripted at NBCU Television & Streaming, said the show would take viewers “on an honest and emotional journey as they watch everyday people conquer their worst fears and discover who they really are on the inside.”
The series is being co-produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio, with Paper Kite’s Poehler and Kate Arend (Baking It) exec producing with Scout’s David Collins, Michael Williams, Rob Eric and Renata Lombardo. Author Magnusson will also serve as executive producer, while Poehler will also narrate each episode.
