Series Description: Producer Rick Sebak and his team take you on a tour of just a few American cemeteries that happen to be full of sculpture, history, trees and flowers, granite monuments, interesting stories and fascinating people, some of them alive and many dead. See cemeteries from Key West to Fairbanks, from Barre, Vermont, to Colma, California. "We hope it's like a walk through a cemetery," said Sebak, "with plenty of old mausoleums, interesting tombstones, graves of the famous, maybe sparking some memories and lots of reminders of our own mortality."
