DROP DEAD DIVA Returns on October 6

Lifetime series DROP DEAD DIVA returns this fall with five all-new episodes, beginning Sunday, October 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Starring Brooke Elliott and Emmy Award nominee Margaret Cho, the series welcomes Emmy nominated actress Illeana Douglas (SIX FEET UNDER), SAG Award winner Peri Gilpin (FRASIER), SAG nominee Richard Kind (SPIN CITY), Jaleel White (FAMILY MATTERS), Doug Savant (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) and Rebecca Mader (LOST) to its guest star roster.

The new episodes will also feature returning guests Emmy nominee Sharon Lawrence, Tony Award nominee Faith Prince, Daytime Emmy nominee Nancy Grace, Wallace "Wally" Langham, Natalie Hall (ALL MY CHILDREN), Annie Ilonzeh (GENERAL HOSPITAL) and Jason Kennedy, among others, leading to the most shocking season finale in the series' history. Immediately following DROP DEAD DIVA's fall premiere, Lifetime will debut its new drama WITCHES OF EAST END at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Produced by Sony Pictures Television, the one-hour comedic drama stars Brooke Elliott, Margaret Cho, Jackson Hurst, April Bowlby, Justin Deeley, Lex Medlin and Kate Levering.

Picking up on this summer's mid-season finale, Jane (Elliott) defends a former socialite, but her tactics put the firm in financial jeopardy and threatens its very existence. Meanwhile, Owen (Medlin) and Stacy (Bowlby) explore impending parenthood after Owen agrees to be her sperm donor. As the season continues, Grayson's (Hurst) relationship with Nicole (Ilonzeh) develops further as Paul (Deeley) makes a play to convince Jane to move on and begin dating again. And Teri (Cho), Jane's faithful assistant, continues to shine while helping her with both work and her ever-complicated personal endeavors.

To celebrate the fall return of the show, select members of the cast and crew, including Executive Producer Josh Berman, Jackson Hurst, April Bowlby, Kate Levering, Justin Deeley and Lex Medlin will participate in a live "Facebook Chat" on Sunday, October 13th, at 8:30 p.m. ET, leading into that evening's all-new episode. The cast also will be chatting with fans on their personal Facebook pages, as well as DROP DEAD DIVA's official Facebook page which has more than 750,000 likes. In addition, the series' summer mid-season finale, which originally aired on August 11, is now available for free on iTunes to allow DROP DEAD DIVA fans to catch up on the program in advance of its October 6 return.
