FORT WORTH, Texas —

The Lifetime TV network says it dropped a reality show about a Texas mortuary after eight decaying bodies were found at the facility and the co-owners were charged with corpse abuse.

Lifetime announced in June it would produce a show called "Good Grief" about the Johnson Family Mortuary in Fort Worth. The show was due to air July 23.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (http://bit.ly/1l0ATFv ) reports that Lifetime Networks vice president Les Eisner says the show "has not and will not air on Lifetime." The Associated Press left messages for Eisner seeking further comment Friday.

Business co-owners, Dondre Johnson and his wife and Rachel Hardy-Johnson, were charged last week after the building owner evicted the couple for non-payment of rent and discovered the decomposing bodies inside.
