Lance Loud! A Death in An American Family represents the final chapter in a thirty-year journey for filmmakers Alan and Susan Raymond with the Loud family. Lance Loud's final request for one last film portrait allowed him to say goodbye to his friends and family, and even America, in the manner to which he became familiar—on TV. This extraordinary story of the first reality TV star and his family is not only a celebration of his life but a chronicle of the evolution of American television's portrayal of family life. The Louds will always remain "An American Family."
