Former Cub Andre Dawson has made a post-baseball living as the owner/operator of a funeral home with his wife, Vanessa, and CBS has decided to turn his story into a TV drama series.
According to Deadline, CBS is developing “Closure,” a one-hour TV drama series based loosely on Dawson’s life in the funeral business. Here’s a description of the show’s storyline.
Dawson took over Paradise Memorial Funeral Home in Richmond Heights, Fla. in 2008, when he was a special assistant to the Marlins. The Hall of Famer, who made five straight All-Star teams with the Cubs from 1987-91, will serve as a consultant to the series.
