Dearly Departed is set in the Baptist backwoods of the Bible Belt, where the beleaguered Turpin family proves that living and dying in the South are seldom tidy and always hilarious. Despite their earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, the Turpin’s other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion.
Not since Steel Magnolias, has a more colorful and dysfunctional group of Southern eccentrics gathered below the Mason-Dixon line.
