TV show description:
As the series begins, a vapid blonde aspiring model named Deb Dobson (Brooke D’Orsay) is killed in a car crash. As her soul enters the gates of Heaven, she finds herself declared a self-centered “zero” by the gatekeeper, Fred (Ben Feldman). Not liking what she’s heard, she presses return, hoping to get back to Earth. Deb gets her wish but doesn’t end up in her own body. Instead, she finds herself deposited inside recently-deceased Jane Bingum (Brooke Elliott). Jane’s a highly-intelligent, plus-size attorney who was accidentally shot. Superficial Deb is initially horrified by her new form but in time begins to discover the meaning of inner beauty.

Though she has Jane’s form and legal knowledge, Deb doesn’t have Jane’s memories, making for some very uncomfortable situations. Things are made even tougher by the fact that Deb’s boyfriend, Grayson Kent (Jackson Hurst), works at the same law firm. She’d love to pick up their relationship but he’s still grieving for her former self. Hot-shot lawyer Kim Kasswell (Kate Levering) has always looked down on Jane because of her appearance and wants to start a relationship with Grayson now that Deb is “gone.”

Teri Lee (Margaret Cho) is Jane’s office assistant who tries to help her boss overcome her confusion. After sending Deb back to Earth, Fred is demoted to be her guardian angel and works in the firm’s mailroom to keep an eye on her. He ends up falling for aspiring actress/model Stacy Barnett (April Bowlby), Deb’s best friend and the only person to know the truth about Jane.

Each week, I can barely wait until Drop Dead Diva is on…. then I miss it all week long until it’s on again. I LOVE THIS SHOW ! It’s one of the best, and surpasses categorization. When each season is over, a little delight leaves my life. I wait all year for this show to come back.

Hurry up and bring on the new episodes! It’s not summer without Drop Dead Diva. And never, ever, cancel this show…. PLEASE !

This was a great show. I don’t understand why popular shows get cancelled. The show made me laugh. It was just as good if not better than any daytime soap opera

It was a corky show but I loved it!! I am sad it got cancelled. I ve been looking forward to the new season all this while and it’s just sad there s no continuation. .. I loved Jane s fashion, her wit, and the face that she’s so personable, caring , yet determined and strong.

That is not fair!!!! They left it hanging at the end with too many unanswered questions! How can we get them to bring it back. This show is too good to have stopped there. I want to know what happens with the real Jane in Owen’s Body. How could they do that to all the fans?
