Drop Dead Diva is a drama about a young inspiring model named Deb with a great guy and a best friend. One day her life is shattered on her way to an audition she is in a car accident but instead of going to heaven she wakes up in the body of an attractive, brainy plus size lawyer Jane Bingum.
Jane works in the law firm with Deb’s boyfriend Grayson who’s also a lawyer, but he has no idea who she really is. Only Deb’s best friend Stacy and her guardian angel Fred know that her true identity.
Brooke Elliott stars as Jane Bingum/Deb. Margaret Cho, April Bowlby, Ben Feldman, Jackson Hurst, Kate Levering and Josh Stamberg complete the stellar cast. DDD has had many well known guest stars including Paula Abdul, Rosie O’Donnell, Elliot Gould, Delta Burke, Wanda Sykes, Lance Bass, Mario Lopez, Clay Akin, Liza Minnelli , Howard Hessman, Amanda Bearse, Cybil Shepherd and more.
As a plus size woman I find Drop Dead Diva to be an inspiring show. Its nice to see a plus size woman on tv being shown in a positive way. We’re not just fat women who love food. We can be smart, funny, attractive and even sexy. We can get the hot, attractive doctor, lawyer or actor!
So whether you’re plus sized or just a fan of exciting, romantic Lifetime dramas this is definitely one television show worth checking out.
Drop Dead Diva airs on Sunday nights at 9 pM on Lifetime.
