Dead Like Me: Life After Death Now on DVD

Comments 7 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Vancouver-filmed series Dead Like Me ended a few years ago but it still has quite the following — if even according to Twitter last night when I asked if there were any fans out there and I received dozens of replies within minutes.

It has now moved on to the afterlife in the form of the DVD movie, that has been officially released today.

This morning I had the chance to do a quick interview with the star of the series and film, Ellen Muth, and my post is now available on E!Online.

    The creator of “Dead Like Me” (excellent show, and Ms. Muth is a delight) went on to make the quite-similar “Wonderfalls” and “Pushing Daisies”.

    Darren is correct…unfortunately both those shows were cancelled before they’d had a chance to get a full season (Wonderfalls made 13 episodes and was cancelled after only 4 had aired; Pushing Daisies had its first season shortened to 8 episodes because of the Writers Strike and didn’t make it fully through its second season before being cancelled). They’re both uniformly excellent and it’s a real pity that they didn’t get a chance to develop further stories. I’d love to had a straight-to-DVD movie for either of them!

    It’s too bad they cancelled the series when they did; it felt like it was just hitting its stride near the end.

    One of the things I liked about the series is that while they never explicitly said what city it was set in, they also never tried to hide the fact that it was Vancouver. I don’t know that the movie was filmed in Vancouver, though. I think it was set in Seattle, and it looked more like Seattle from what I could tell.

    @ klparrot – The show was filmed in Vancouver, but it was set in Seattle. The movie was filmed in Quebec.

    I just wanted to point out that there is still a Vancouver connection to the film as the all the Visual Effects work was completed by Lux Visual Effects.

    The crew that completed the work also did a lot of the work for the series and we are really hoping for a resurgence of the show… fingers-crossed!
