The "Drop Dead Diva" cast spoke to fans from the set in Georgia about the news season, and Lifetime sent us the exclusive footage for you to check out before the season premiere June 6.
Memorable Season One moments:
Lifetime's "Drop Dead Diva" features stars Brooke Elliott, Margaret Cho, Jackson Hurst, Kate Levering, April Bowlby, Josh Stamberg and Ben Feldman.
The second season will feature 13 new episodes which premieres on June 6th at 9:00 p.m. on Lifetime.
Talking DVD and Season One:
Currently in production in Atlanta, "Drop Dead Diva’s" season two opener will feature Paula Abdul reprising her role as “Judge Paula Abdul,” a figment of Jane’s subconscious who empowers her in a dream sequence choreographed by So You Think You Can Dance’s Keith “Tyce” Diorio. Devon Gummersall and David Denman return as guest stars this season.
Cho takes us to Diva craft services:
In the first season, we meet a beautiful-but-vapid model wannabe Deb, suddenly in front of Heaven’s gatekeeper, Fred (Feldman), following a fatal car crash.
Margaret Cho caught sleeping on the job:
Outraged by her sudden demise, 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 (Elliott).
Ben takes us to meet the crew:
An intelligent, thoughtful and plus-size attorney with a loyal assistant, Teri (Cho), Jane has always lived in the shadow of her colleagues whereas Deb has always relied on her external beauty.
Fate and divine intervention make Deb come to terms with inhabiting Jane’s fuller frame, learning to reconcile her beauty queen ways with her brilliant, new mind.
April Bowlby stars as “Stacy Barrett”, the best friend and roommate to Deb/Jane. A struggling model herself, Stacy is the link between Deb’s past and her present and serves as the support Jane needs to navigate her future.
At the close of last season, Deb was ready to let go of her past and embrace her new life as Jane. But the unexpected arrival of Jane’s “secret” husband Ethan (Gummersall) at her doorstep left the show and Jane in the lurch.
Jane may also be disbarred after breaching client-attorney confidentiality when, against the firm’s advisement, she reported her client for fraud. Faced with a new love triangle and the uncertainty of her career, "Drop Dead Diva" delivers great story on a stylish set with a cracking cast of players.
Some of the guest stars throughout the first season of "Drop Dead Diva" included Abdul, Liza Minnelli, Rosie O’Donnell, Tim Gunn, Delta Burke, Nia Vardalos, Kathy Najimy, Jorja Fox, Elliott Gould and Gregory Harrison.
