Wardrobe notes:

· For “Nightlife” scenes - dresses with spaghetti straps, and stylish jeans for women, tops with jewel tones and color are good!

· Men with that “Entourage” feel, overdyed or dark upscale jeans and shirts with peak or notch collars and sport jackets and soft soled rubber dress shoes, and handsome, “chic suits” for play

· Please come in style, simple jewelry is best, with hair and make up camera ready

Plenty of free parking, bring a pen and headshots if you have them. Please know your wardrobe sizes (height, waist, inseam, shoe, etc.).


When beautiful-but-vapid model wannabe Deb (Brooke D’Orsay) has a fatal car accident, she suddenly finds herself in front of Heaven’s gatekeeper, Fred (Ben Feldman), who declares her a self-centered “zero.” Outraged, 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 (Brooke Elliott). A brilliant, thoughtful and plus-size attorney with a loyal assistant (Margaret Cho), Jane has always lived in the shadow of her more comely colleagues whereas Deb has always relied on her external beauty. Now, by a twist of fate and a bolt of divine intervention, both personalities must learn to coexist in Jane’s plus-size frame in the ultimate showdown between brains and beauty. Drop Dead Diva is produced by Sony Pictures Television for Lifetime Television. Josh Berman (Bones, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) is creator and executive producer. Alex Taub (Eli Stone) joins Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Academy Award®-winning Chicago, Hairspray, Lifetime’s Living Proof) of Storyline Entertainment as executive producers.
