“The pilot for ‘Death In The Modern Age’ blew me away with its original characters and insightful writing.  I’m looking forward to working with Landscape and eOne to put together a gripping and original show,” said Bob Weinstein in the announcement.

“Death In The Modern Age” was initially announced as part of SundanceTV’s first-ever scripted development slate in 2012.
