A gorgeous, silly blonde named Deb dies in an accident, arrives at the afterlife in a snit and impulsively pushes some sort of cosmic panic button. Her soul flies back to Earth but lands in the fresh corpse of a plus-size attorney, Jane. Jane jolts alive, only now her legal-eagle mind has been crowded out by a pea-brained fashionista's. A show with this sort of premise—there's also a guardian angel—should be DOA, but newcomer Brooke Elliott is both charming and surprisingly credible as Jane-inhabited-by-Deb. She's a find.
