Lifetime's 'Drop Dead Diva' canceled
One might say that even Kim Kardashian couldn't save “Drop Dead Diva" -- or one could say that she hastened its demise -- but whatever argument you chose, the result is the same: “DDD” will not return for a fifth season, Lifetime said Tuesday.
The show starred the especially talented (of considerable stage accomplishment) Brooke Elliott as a deceased model trapped in a lawyer's body, and did quite well for Lifetime over its four-year run. But obviously not well enough.
Kardashian was added last season, and there had been other gimmick casting moves over the years as well (Paula Abdul -- remember? Brandy, Joan Rivers...). At least one prominent website -- Deadline.com -- says the producer may try to sell the show elsewhere, so Jane may yet live again.
Check out last summer's promo with KK. You are left to wonder whether this galvanized fans or turned them off.
