“SO DEAD” is a dark comedy with heart that follows five inseparable friends who unexpectedly lose one of their own. As the young adults are thrown into the depths of grief, not knowing what to do or where to turn, they follow advice from one of their extravagant mothers only to be lead down the cuckoo trail even further...
Advice followed and misery churned, when their should-be-dead best friend appears to them as a ghost that only they can see, they’re left puzzled and comedically overwhelmed. With no answers and a heavy reluctance not to be sectioned, the group remain silent and set out on a mission to discover what on earth is going on.
“SO DEAD” is a story of grief, coming to terms with death and the celebration of friendship. For those with in-depth TV knowledge, picture Channel 4’s Fresh Meat mashed together with NBC’s Friends and HBO’s Wilfred.
