TV Series Seeking Stories on How We Die

A new TV series is looking for first-person stories from patients, their families, loved ones, and doctors about how personal experiences have shaped what we believe about death and dying, and about the decisions we make for ourselves, for loved ones, or for patients at the end of life.

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.

Here’s the website to submit your story:

The project was created by Web Lab (, 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 (, a production company founded by the core members of PJ Productions following the death of their colleague and partner, legendary broadcaster Peter Jennings.
