| by Michael Allen

The Learning Channel has ordered a new reality show 'Best Funeral Ever,' that goes behind-the-scenes of the Golden Gate Funeral Hom in Dallas, Texas.

Funeral director John Beckwith Jr. works with the families to create a theme for a memorial and then throws a wild party, reports EW.com.

There is the Christmas-inspired funeral with reindeer and elves as well as a BBQ-themed funeral which includes live pigs, praise dancers, and a BBQ sauce fountain where loved ones dip ribs.

Beckman says “We’re going to make these families extremely happy at the worst moments of their lives.”

The Best Funeral Ever airs the day after Christmas, Dec. 26.
