(Grim Reapers Anonymous), his wife’s overbearing ways and a boastful reaper known simply as Chad, Sherman is one incident away from having a meltdown. Enter JAKE HARTLEY, a kind soul who dreams of a simple existence, like his favorite television hero Gilligan – but his life is anything but trouble-free. When he finds out that his wife Emily is pregnant, he needs a bigger apartment and he’s about to lose his job at the New Hope Suicide Center, his house of cards is about to come tumbling down. One evening, while on soul assignment, Sherman gets the idea to befriend a sympathetic voice (Jake’s) on the other end of a suicide phone call as a Wall Street executive plummets to his doom, even though the reaper code is very specific about interacting with the human world… it’s just not permitted. But for Sherman, he figures he has nothing to lose, so he sets up a meeting between him and Jake the next day. As Sherman plots his rendezvous with Jake in Central Park, Jake is accidentally struck down by an ice cream truck and as fate would have it, falls into a coma.
