 Grief Porn is a social commentary about how we report death in the modern digital world. Set in the office of the obituary section of a social media department, we start with the news that the department is being closed and our office workers' careers are dead. With emotions running high, their reactions range from denial to acceptance, with all the anger, depression and bargaining in between. But will they be able to hashtag their way into resurrecting their jobs? A high octane comedy for the social media savvy.
