“Drop Dead Diva’s” second season is out and it is even more fun than the first.  The delightful Brooke Elliot plays a beautiful slender model whose spirit takes over the body of Jane, an overweight but very successful lawyer.  Only her best friend (April Bowlby) and guardian angel (Ben Feldman) know who she really is.  Every episode features clients with legal problems and Jane’s progress in getting used to her new life while trying to connect to the fiance from her old one.  The second season features the “Devil Wears Prada”-with-a-twist story featuring one of my favorite young actors, Laura Breckenridge.  Here are some glimpses of the show:
