HBO is celebrating one of its signature dramas with a marathon of the entire 63-episode run of “Six Feet Under.” The event, which launches tonight, marks the 15th anniversary of the acclaimed series.
The show, which starred Peter Krause, Michael C. Hall, Frances Conroy, Lauren Ambrose and Rachel Griffiths, ran for five seasons on the pay-cable channel, from June 3, 2001, to Aug. 21, 2005. Others who appeared on the series included James Cromwell, Freddy Rodriguez, Mathew St. Patrick and Jeremy Sisto.
The series chalked up a string of awards during its run, including receiving a whopping 23 Primetime Emmy nominations in 2002 alone (and winning six trophies that year), followed by another 16 nominations and one win in 2003. The show also won three Golden Globes during its run, including Best Television Series, Drama, in 2002. In 2003, the series received a Peabody Award.
The 63 episodes will air back-to-back starting tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT and running through Sunday, June 5, at 12:20 p.m.
