Before Bon Temps became one of the hottest little towns on television, Alan Ball brought his particular brand of dark humor, his tragicomic take on suburban living, and touch of the fantastical to Los Angeles with Six Feet Under. The series, which ran on HBO for five seasons, followed Ballâs shows Oh, Grow Up and Cybill and his critically acclaimed film American Beauty, for which he won an Oscar for writing. In addition to finding a fervent set of fans who became drawn into the lives of the Fisher family, the show also bolstered the careers of many of its stars, whose quirky roles and spot-on performances were the backbone of a series that often tackled difficult subject matter.
