TV Series Seeking Stories on How We Die
The series will explore experiences that tested or challenged their values and beliefs about who decides when and how we die, and what role, if any, government and healthcare institutions should play in those decisions.
The series, tentatively titled "Stories," is being developed by Marc N. Weiss, creator of the long-running PBS series P.O.V. and Tom Yellin, a veteran network news and public affairs producer.

The project was created by Web Lab (www.weblab.org), an online laboratory designed to use the Web to engage people in new ways on a wide range of public and private issues, in collaboration with The Documentary Group (www.thedocumentarygroup.com), a production company founded by the core members of PJ Productions following the death of their colleague and partner, legendary broadcaster Peter Jennings.
