Culver City, CA (March 22, 2010) – The top-rated and quirky comedic drama series on Lifetime TV comes to DVD June 1st when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment debuts Drop Dead Diva: Season One. This unique series from Sony Pictures Television which was a network surprise hit from last summer, stars Brooke Elliott (Broadway’s “Taboo”) as a shallow wannabe model who dies in a sudden accident only to find her soul resurfacing in the body of a brilliant, plus-size and recently deceased attorney, Jane. Comedian Margaret Cho (TV’s “All American Girl”) also stars in the series which features guest appearances by Rosie O’Donnell (The Rosie O’Donnell Show), Paula Abdul (TV’s “American Idol”), Tim Gunn (TV’s “Project Runway”), Liza Minelli (Cabaret, Arthur), Sharon Lawrence (TV’s “Monk”), Kathy Najimy (TV’s “King of the Hill”), Delta Burke (TV’s “Designing Women”) and Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding). Drop Dead Diva: Season One contains exclusive bonus content including short films, deleted scenes and all-new behind-the-scenes featurettes. The DVD will be available for $39.95.
When Deb, a beautiful-but-vapid model wannabe has a fatal car accident, she suddenly finds herself in front of Heaven’s gatekeeper Fred, 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, a brilliant, thoughtful and plus-sized attorney with a loyal assistant, Teri (Cho). Jane has always lived in the shadow of her more glamorous 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 and learn to reconcile her beauty queen ways with her brilliant, new mind.
