ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" has some new competition. Another reality show shot right here in St. Louis premieres this week.

Family, friends, and colleagues of the "Funeral Boss" got a sneak peek of his new show at the Soulard Preservation Hall.

The show follows the story of Funeral Director Bill Harris, who owns the William C. Harris Funeral Home in north St. Louis County.

Harris employs his four children, who hope to eventually take over the business and they're part of the series too.

"It was a very humbling experience for me to learn a different career, so to speak. Not that I want to become anyone from Hollywood or New York or anything like that, but it was an experience of this is an opportunity to show the world how I take care of my families," said Harris.

"Funeral Boss" is produced by St. Louis-based Coolfire Originals and airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on the Discovery Health and Fit network.
