The Lifetime television series Drop Dead Diva is in production on it’s sixth and final season and an open casting call has been scheduled for Saturday March 8th, 2014.
After being cancelled on January 15, 2013 the network announced that the show would be brought back to life for a fifth season. There was a tremendous outcry from the show’s fans, and showrunner Josh Berman credits the fans for the return of the comedy-drama television series. Lifetime signed a deal on March 1, 2013 with Sony Pictures Television that made the show economically viable not only for Season 5, but also for at least a sixth season also. However, Lifetime announced on October 25, 2013 that the series would indeed officially end after season six.
Drop Dead Diva was created by and is executive produced by two-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Josh Berman. Also executive producing is Storyline Entertainment’s nine-time Primetime Emmy Award nominees Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, along with Robert J. Wilson. Meron and Zadan’s Storyline Entertainment films and television productions have won six Academy Awards, five Golden Globes, and eleven Emmy Awards. The sixth and final season of Drop Dead Diva premieres on March 23 at 9/8c with a two-hour event.
