Documentary About Last Days of the Dying

ShowtimeShowtime is producing a documentary series called 'Time of Death' that chronicles the last days of a group of Americans with terminal diseases. Death is all over television shows, but the shows do not cover the process of dying or how it impacts loved ones. The series is produced by Magical Elves and claims the show  "unflinching, intimate look at remarkable people facing their own mortality.". Magical Elves also produced "Top Chef" and "Project Runway".  The co- executive producer explains the show will not only impact viewers but also individuals suffering from terminal illness. "It turns out when you put a camera on someone who is dying, they keep going. It keeps them looking forward, it gives them a distraction from the inevitable," Miggi Hood, a co-executive producer, explains.
