LIFETIME ORDERS MORE "DROP DEAD DIVA"
Released by Miss TV Girl
Lifetime's comedic drama "Drop Dead Diva" has been renewed for a second season.
The network has ordered 13 new episodes of the freshman series to air in 2010.
"Drop Dead Diva," which premiered in July as Lifetime's best original drama series has become the first scripted series since " Army Wives" to earn a second-season pickup. It has averaged 2.6 million viewers a week.
The series, about a dead shallow model reincarnated in the body of a brilliant plus-size attorney (Brooke Elliott), has been pretty consistent in its storytelling and development of the characters.
I think what has made this show so popular is the talented Brooke Elliott who plays Jane in such a real and vulnerable way. You want so much for her to have everything life has to offer.
