Drop Dead Diva premieres tonight on Lifetime!

Catch Margaret in the season premiere of Drop Dead Diva, a new series on Lifetime starting tonight!

Drop Dead Diva tells the story of a shallow model-in-training who dies in a sudden accident only to find her soul resurfacing in the body of a brilliant, plus-size and recently deceased attorney. Television newcomer and stage actress Brooke Elliott (Wicked, Taboo) stars as lawyer Jane Bingum, and Margaret plays her gal Friday, Terri.

Says Margaret, “This show, I absolutely love. It’s really funny, but it’s also touching. It has a lot of heart, and I think the acting is really incredible. I think people are going to fall in love with Brooke and the character Jane and realize that beauty comes in all sizes. When you look at women in movies and TV, it’s an unrealistic view of what women really look like. With the show, we are promoting a real woman who is beautiful with real curves, has a real attitude and is fabulous.”

Read advance reviews of Drop Dead Diva here, and check out Margaret’s latest blog entry about the show, “On Being Invisible.”

  1. OMG, I just watched the 43 minute Pilot (Episode 1) of Drop Dead Diva after clicking on the ‘watch previews and extras here’ above. What a great show. Margaret, you did make me laugh a lot but I wasn’t expecting to feel so many emotions. I hope everyone read your blog entry about the show (by clicking on ‘On being invisible’ above). You described it so well. Brooke Elliot as Jane made me tear up too. Drop Dead Diva has everything. Deep and emotional stuff mixed in with the light, funny, and most of all fun to watch. I guess I’ve become a Margaret Cho fan. I love all of it. You’re not invisible to me, that’s for sure.

  2. Marge,

    See, I have taken the liberty to call you that after watching a marathon of all the season 1 episodes. I loved your sarcasm and wit and acting! It’s like… the new norm.

    Will be waiting for tomorrow’s airing of DDD. Did I get it right? Tomorrow? How am I supposed to watch it? ANyway, I’ll figure it out somehow… Will be wanting to see more of your wit– but mostly your sarcasm (and this is a compliment!).
