“This is rather shallow,” said a female colleague, “but at my aunt’s funeral last year the undertaker was drop-dead gorgeous. It was very distracting. It’s not often you see a man who is truly handsome, but he was the business.” “It’s almost worth having a relative die,” I suggested. “Almost,” she said.

Is this the basis for an existing dark and/or romantic comedy? If not, why not?

Well, Alan Bennett gives the idea half a page at the end of "The Lady In The Van"; during the funeral of Miss Shephard, he finds himself attracted to one of the undertakers.

He says something along the lines "I muse that Joe Orton would've turned this to some sexual advantage, a hey diddle-diddle in the bushes and a quick funereal feel".
