One of my favorite new shows of last years summer season was Drop Dead Diva.  I am so happy to see it coming back next week. This show airs on Lifetime Television network on Sunday nights.  It's like a long lost friend.  If you haven't heard of this show or haven't seen it, you can catch up on all season one episodes this weekend, May 30th from 10am to 11pm ET/PT on Lifetime.  You can also watch all episodes from season one on Lifetime, and if you are addicted like I am season one is out on DVD June 1st.

Here is a little background on the shows storyline, In the first season of Drop Dead Diva, beautiful-but-vapid model wannabe Deb, suddenly finds herself in front of Heaven’s gatekeeper, Fred, following a fatal car crash. 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. An intelligent, thoughtful and plus-size attorney with a loyal assistant, Teri, Jane has always lived in the shadow of her colleagues whereas Deb has always relied on her external beauty. 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.

This show was praised by critics as one of 2009’s top new series, the one-hour, comedic drama tells the story of 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.  Drop Dead Diva features breakout star Brooke Elliott (Wicked, Taboo), Margaret Cho (Ghost Whisperer, Notorious C.H.O.), Jackson Hurst (The Tree of Life), Kate Levering (Cashmere Mafia), April Bowlby (Two and a Half Men), Josh Stamberg (Lie to Me) and Ben Feldman (The Perfect Man). The second season of Drop Dead Diva will feature 13 new episodes.

Once you have caught up on season one, make a note or add it to the DVR for season two premier, Sunday, June 6 on Lifetime 9pm et/pt.  If this entire season is as good as the sneak peek of season two I saw, I am on pins and needles for the  rest of the episodes. I won't give you any details, but you can catch a snipet of season two here.

Also be sure to follow the show on Facebook and on Twitter to keep up with all the latest details.  Once you watch it I think you will be hooked like I am!
