What I think ‘Drop Dead Diva’ is About, Based on its Commercials, in Addition to My Minimal Knowledge and Less-than-Minimal Cynicism

Posted on

Premise: A hot blonde dies, and is reborn as a fat brunette with the wit and charm only a sitcom writer could provide. The show is Lifetime’s attempt at the “weight acceptance” movement, showing with no subtlety that, yes, fat women can be beautiful, too- as evidenced by the fact Fat Brunette (FaBru) is told she looks great and fawned over no less than four times in two 60-second spots.

So how accurate am I?
