When Deb, a beautiful-but-vapid model wannabe has a fatal car accident, she suddenly finds herself in front of Heaven’s gatekeeper Fred, 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, a brilliant, thoughtful and plus-sized attorney with a loyal assistant, Teri (Cho).
Jane has always lived in the shadow of her more glamorous colleagues whereas Deb has always relied on her external beauty.
Now, 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.
DVD special features include Dreamisodes, deleted scenes, Rosie’s Rap, Dropping in with Drop Dead Diva and ‘Cho and Tell’.
