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.

    I have watched the show from the every beginning. What a refreshing show.The star of the show not a size 2. The writing of the show was great. The stories told each week, had displayed a heart felt lesson to be learn. Shame on you lifetime for you for taking off the air. Drop Dead Diva should be a example of the types of shows that you carry on your network. Not the JUNK reality shows what are shown other network. Honey Boo Boo is a Prime example.

    Love Drop Dead Diva – take off the shows about those women who fight all the time – don’t know the name of the programs or even care and get rid of the Honey Boo Boo types – DDD is excellent and I look forward to seeing it = just isn’t long enough.

    I hope we can get the ratings up have all our family and friends to watch it and fall in love with the characters as all the fans. The diva is so cheerful after all thats happened to her in the four seasons weve watched. I always feel better about myself. Deb carrys herself as we should her inner beauty shines through. So i like many others hope we get lots more
