Swedish Death Cleaning Trailer Revealed by Peacock

In the transformational series, eight people at different stages of their lives are given the chance to sort out their home, life, and relationships before it’s too late.

Plucked from Sweden, an organizer, designer, and psychologist — also known as the “Death Cleaners” — come to America to help subjects reinvent themselves by facing their mortality, speaking honestly about death, and confronting all that “crap” that has been collecting dust for years.

Each story builds toward a physical overhaul of the home, as well as an emotional evolution, leaving us smiling with a lighter view of death and a more celebratory vision for the future.

This is a journey of levity and hope as Amy Poehler hilariously guides us through stories about dealing with our stuff… so that those we leave behind aren’t faced with the overwhelming task of sorting through it.

Swedish Death Cleaning normalizes one of our worst fears, death, by reminding us of all the ways we are alive.

The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning hosts include Katarina Blom, Ellinor Engström, and Johan Svenson. J.J. Duncan is the showrunner and executive producer.

The executive producers include Amy Poehler, Kate Arend, David Collins, Michael Williams, Rob Eric, Renata Lombardo, Stephen Morrison, Faye Stapleton, Margareta Magnusson, Jane Magnusson, and Susanna Lea.

The show is produced by Scout Productions, Paper Kite Productions, and Universal Television Alternative Studio.
