TUNE IN: IRREVERENT KIWI COMEDY GOOD GRIEF STREAMS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 ON SUNDANCE NOW

In Good Grief, two millennial sisters in small town New Zealand inherit a funeral home from their grandfather. Unsure what to do with it - or the oddball staff that keep the place running - Ellie (Eve Palmer, The Adam And Eve Show) and Gwen (Grace Palmer, Shortland Street) are thrust into a world of embalming, emceeing, and embarrassment. Recently fired from her teaching career, Ellie starts to warm to the job, but all Gwen wants to do is go DJ in Bali. By staring death in the face every day, Ellie and Gwen begin to confront the realities of their own life, and what they want to make of it.

Good Grief, Season 1 will make its U.S., Canadian and U.K. premiere on September 30 as binge release (6x15) on Sundance Now followed by its North American broadcast premiere on IFC beginning October 4. Season 2 will go into production later in 2021 in Auckland city and premiere in 2022 with 6 episodes expanded to 20 minutes each.

Good Grief, Season 1 is directed by Kiel McNaughton (The Legend of Baron To'a, My Life is Murder), produced by Angela Cudd (I Am Waru) and Kerry Warkia (Vai, Waru). The first season's creative team and lead cast will also return for Season 2.
