Fans say farewell to favorite skein
For some of those mourning the passing of HBO’s “Six Feet Under” in Hollywood on Sunday, the grieving process was well advanced — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance … and graveside cocktails.
Show producer Alan Poul and former West Hollywood mayor and current councilmember John Duran were among those attending the ACLU of Southern California-sponsored finale viewing and burial of the five-season series.
After credits rolled, attendees made a funeral procession beeline from the Paramount Pictures Theater to Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Mourners paid their respects to a “Six Feet Under” tombstone, hoping the Emmy-and Golden Globe-winning series would rest in peace.
“As each of our cast members finished shooting, there was a sense of both celebration and sadness,” Poul said of his last days on the set. “But then — each person ended and there were a few more left — there was never one big moment of sad goodbye. We kind of faded away.”
