Drop Dead Diva Bosses and Guest Star Talk About Tonight’s Controversial Topic

A very powerful episode of  Drop Dead Diva  will feature Tyler Jacob Moore as Dan Abraham, a gay male who is arrested for donating his sperm due to the 2005 California law  prohibiting gay men from donating. During a recent conference call,  TV Equals  learned from Moore and  Drop Dead Diva  executive producers Josh Berman and Craig Zadan about Moore’s character and the importance of the episode. What made Moore take the role Moore wanted to be a part of the episode after he read the script . “I mean, as an actor you sadly read a lot of crap out there.[W]hen I read the script for this initially, it’s always refreshing to read something that is actually in general, you know, the writing as well is well-crafted. But then on top of that, to read something that is actually.fun and can be fun and silly but it’s trying to say something, kind of like, you know, a spoonful of sugar for the masses. And I think that this episode did that with the issue of gay men not being able to donate sperm,” said Moore. “I immediately wanted to commend [Berman and Zadan] and do this role. And I thought, you know, I could play – I could be this man pretty easily just on the idea that, you know, not know that this is a law and being kind of shocked by the whole process. [T]he character goes along just kind of being flabbergasted by the fact that we still have these types of laws on the books.” Read More... http://www.tvequals.com/2012/08/19/drop-dead-diva-bosses-and-guest-star-talk-about-tonights-controversial-topic/

'Dance Moms' Abby Lee Miller As Herself On 'Drop Dead Diva'

Abby Lee Miller proved up for poking fun at her on-screen persona when she guest-starred as herself on " Drop Dead Diva " (Sun., 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime). The tough-as-nails " Dance Moms " instructor was brought in as an expert witness, helping determine if another dance teacher is perhaps too hard on her kids. Abby wouldn't know anything about that, would she? Jane actually called Abby out on her own behavior, using clips from "Dance Moms" to show how Abby's approach may not have matched what she said an ideal dance teacher should aspire to do for his or her students. Footage of Jane's client, Deb's mother Bobbie, show a similar brutality. But, as Abby pointed out, while both instructors have had success with their students, Abby has never had a child get a career-ending injury under her care. That's what Bobbie is getting sued for. The insurance attorney agrees to pay out $15,000 to the girl's mother, but then Jane turns around and wins the case in Bobbie's favor -- even after getting fired from it. After realizing how quickly the ambulance arrived, she gets a confession from the girl that she'd really injured herself skateboarding. She was never as into dance as her mother, who was driving both her dancing and the trial. "Drop Dead Diva" continues every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
