Lifetime Network Drops Reality TV Show On Texas Mortuary

FORT WORTH (July 25, 2014) The Lifetime TV network says it dropped a reality show about a Fort Worth mortuary after eight decaying bodies were found at the facility and the co-owners were charged with corpse abuse.

Lifetime announced in June it would produce a show called "Good Grief" about the Johnson Family Mortuary in Fort Worth.

The show was due to air on Wednesday, but the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that Lifetime Networks vice president Les Eisner said the show "has not and will not air on Lifetime."

Business co-owners, Dondre Johnson and his wife and Rachel Hardy-Johnson, were charged last week after the building owner evicted the couple for non-payment of rent and discovered the decomposing bodies inside.
