Drop Dead Diva Screening Season Premiere

Drop Dead Diva Season Premiere Screening

As I mentioned before in the other post that I was attending the screening of Drop Dead Diva's Season Premiere! Here's my review, but first a small introduction to Drop Dead Diva in case you're not familiar with this great show.

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.
In the first season of “Drop Dead Diva,” beautiful-but-vapid model wannabe Deb (Brooke D’Orsay) suddenly finds herself in front of heaven’s gatekeeper, Fred (Ben Feldman), 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 (Brooke Elliott). An intelligent, thoughtful and plus-size attorney with a loyal assistant, Teri (Margaret Cho), 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.

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 (Devon Gummersall), at her doorstep left her with more questions than ever. To make matters worse, Jane may 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, Jane must, once again, chart out a new future for herself. Season 2 Premieres June 6 at 9pm on Lifetime.

I arrived early, I got good seats, and I mean very good seats, half of the theatre was reserved, so the seats beside me were reserved, and guess who came and sat by me? The entire cast!
Right beside me was Brooke Elliott (Jane Bingum) She is so pretty! sitting next was Jackson Hurst (Grayson Kent) I can't remember who was next but the cast were:
Ben Feldman (Fred), April Bowlby (Stacy Barrett), Kate Levering (Kim Kaswell), Josh Stamberg (Parker)
I watched the season 2 premiere, and I have to say it was great! Judge Paula Abdul guest stars! I liked the season premiere, and cannot wait to watch this season.
Something amazing to me, was watching this show and looking to my right and seeing the cast! After the premiere ended the cast was interviewed by any one who wanted to ask a question.

They are really nice, down to earth people, happy to be doing this great show on Lifetime.
They said they are all great friends off-screen, and they hope Drop Dead Diva continues for many more seasons.
After the interviews, the cast was taken to the back, we were able to meet them and take pictures with them!
