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.

Series Finale:     
Episode #78 — It Had to Be You
While Owen and Kim attempt to talk some sense into Jane about her relationship with Ian, Stacy is caught in the middle. Meanwhile, Teri has her own grievances with Ian when she realizes he is her former classmate responsible for ruining her chances at stardom. Owen and Jane find themselves on opposite ends of a case while Kim represents her former temp when he’s fired from his temp agency.
First aired: JUne 22, 2014.

    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 !

    Drop Dead Diva was the best show ever. Why was it cancelled? I really hope there will be another Season because I really miss it. Excellent show.

    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

    So sad that Drop Dead Diva was cancelled. I thought it was entertaining. Tell me why Honey Boo Boo has not been cancelled but Drop Dead Diva was?????

    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?

  7. Karen says

    They should not cancel this show. have been a fan since the first episode. didn’t really give an ending to the show. don’t follow all the other networks in cancelling good shows
