.....'Drop Dead Diva' from Lifetime......they will do gender swap and the original character will be a man that is transferred to woman's body [ instead of woman to woman ].....


Drop Dead Diva Reboot

.....Drop Dead Diva is being resurrected by CBS: The Eye network is developing a gender-swapped reboot of the Lifetime dramedy

The hour-long reboot, titled Drop Dead Dave, centers on a self-involved Gen Z lawyer named Dave who dies in a freak accident “and 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,” per the official synopsis.

It hails from Drop Dead Diva creator Josh Berman, who will write the pilot and serve as an executive producer. The original Drop Dead Diva, which ran from 2009 to 2014 on Lifetime, followed vapid model Deb, who is killed in a car crash and is reincarnated as plus-size lawyer Jane, played by Brooke Elliott.

Yes liked the original. It was more about navigating as an unattractive person who is nonetheless a great person. Do not see how the gender bender angle will work.

“A transporter mixup accidentally puts Captain Kirk in Yeoman Rand’s body. Can he successfully navigate the sexist world of Starfleet? Is he going to change his misogynistic ways? Will he become the first woman captain of the enterprise?”
