Description

Drop Dead Diva is an American comedy-drama fantasy television series created by Josh Berman and produced by Sony Pictures Television about a vapid, aspiring model killed in a car crash who gets brought back to life as an intelligent, overweight lawyer, hoping to find the meaning of inner beauty. See Seasons below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

When beautiful-but-vapid model wannabe Deb (Brooke D'Orsay) has a fatal car accident, she suddenly finds herself in front of Heaven's gatekeeper, Fred (Ben Feldman), who declares her a self-centered zero.

Outraged, she attempts to persuade Fred to return her to her shallow existence but is accidentally relegated to the body of the recently deceased Jane Bingum (Brooke Elliott).

A brilliant, thoughtful and plus-size attorney with a loyal assistant, Teri (Margaret Cho), Jane has always lived in the shadow of her more comely colleagues whereas Deb has always relied on her external beauty.

Now, by a twist of fate and a bolt of divine intervention, Deb must come to terms with inhabiting Jane's curvier frame in the ultimate showdown between brains and beauty.

Drop Dead Diva is produced by Sony Pictures Television for Lifetime Television. Through his Osprey Productions, Josh Berman is creator and executive producer. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron of Storyline Entertainment are executive producers.

Alex Taub is executive producer and show runner and David Petrarca is a director and executive producer. Thania St. John is a consulting producer as are the team of Jeanette Collins and Mimi Friedman.
