The GLAAD Media Award-winning Lifetime series, Drop Dead Diva, is having a marathon this Sunday, leading up to its latest episode airing at 9pm/8c.
The mini-marathon will include the Drop Dead Diva episode "Secret Lives." The episode is about a closeted professional baseball player arrested on suspicion of murder. Jane defends him in court as he struggles with the decision to come out.
Also included in the marathon, last week's episode, "Trust Me," in which Jane devises a plan to help a woman gain access to her trust fund, and Grayson helps a young victim of bullying.
Drop Dead Diva has shown a strong commitment to telling the stories of the LGBT community. Drop Dead Diva received the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Individual Episode at the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards for the episode "Prom" in which Jane defends a lesbian couple who want to attend their high school prom together. The episode was based on the story of Constance McMillen, a Mississippi teen who was prevented from bringing her girlfriend as her date to senior prom. Drop Dead creator Josh Berman heard Constance' story at the GLAAD Media Awards the previous year and decided to turn it into an episode. The series also received nominations at the 22nd and 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards for an episode about a trans woman fighting a legal battle to inherit her wife's assets, and another speaking out against the FDA ban on sperm donations by gay and bisexual men.
Catch the mini-marathon of Drop Dead Diva on Lifetime 10am - 4pm this Sunday, October 13.
