Season 2

In the first season of Drop Dead Diva, beautiful-but-vapid model wannabe Deb (Brooke D'Orsay) suddenly finds herself in front of heaven's gatekeeper, Fred (Ben Feldman), following a fatal car crash.

Outraged by her sudden demise, 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).

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

By a twist of fate and a bolt of divine intervention, Deb must come to terms with inhabiting Jane's curvier frame and learn to reconcile her beauty-queen ways with her brilliant new mind.

At the close of last season, Deb was ready to let go of her past and embrace her new life as Jane. But the unexpected arrival of Jane's secret husband, Ethan (Devon Gummersall), at her doorstep left her with more questions than ever.

To make matters worse, Jane may be disbarred after breaching client-attorney confidentiality when, against the firm's advisement, she reported her client for fraud.

Faced with a new love triangle and the uncertainty of her career, Jane must, once again, chart out a new future for herself.

The Season 2 opener of Drop Dead Diva features entertainer Paula Abdul reprising her role as Judge Paula Abdul, a figment of Jane's subconscious. Devon Gummersall and David Denman return as guest stars this season.

The premiere episode also features a musical dream sequence, choreographed by Tyce Diorio of So You Think You Can Dance.

Josh Berman is creator and executive producer. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron of Storyline Entertainment are executive producers. Alex Taub also returns as executive producer.
