Drop Dead Diva creator Josh Berman is working on a gender-swapped reboot of his 2009-2014 Lifetime dramedy that starred Brooke Elliott. In Drop Dead Dave, "when shallow, entitled, Gen Z lawyer Dave dies in a freak accident, his soul is transferred into the body of Rita, a successful but complicated Gen X attorney, forcing Dave to live as a woman and navigate an entirely new perspective on life, love and identity," according to Deadline. Drop Dead Diva, which ran on Lifetime for six seasons, followed the story of shallow model Deb who suddenly dies in an accident only to find her soul resurfacing in the body of a brilliant, plus-sized attorney, Jane, played by Elliott. Whereas Drop Dead Diva focused on deconstructing the beauty myth and reinforcing body positivity, Deadline reports that Drop Dead Dave will tackle sexual politics as well as gender identity in modern times. Berman will reteam with Drop Dead Diva director-producer Jamie Babbit, an Emmy nominee for her work on Silicon Valley, for Drop Dead Dave.
