“Drop Dead Diva” is the story of how a “all about the looks” model dies and comes back to life in the body of a plus sized lawyer, who also recently died. The show is about this very shallow woman now having to deal with not being in her former gorgeous body. In the show she begins to learn lessons about what is important as she deals with her new life and new career. The show follows one woman’s quest to find her inner beauty. Blonde and vain model Deb dies and is sent back to Earth at the pearly gates given another chance to do something worthwhile in her life. Accidentally, she returns to a body that belongs to a overweight lawyer named Jane where she needs to learn how to be a lawyer and deal with her now heavier body.
