Week 2: Diva Dish With Creator Josh Berman
Last week, we brought you the first ever Diva Dish post — with very special guest and "Drop Dead Diva" creator and executive producer Josh Berman! With Diva Dish here on the "Drop Dead Diva" Blog (and, as always "Diva" on Facebook and Twitter!) I'm happy to hand over all of the exciting news and updates on Season 3 leading up to the premiere of Season 3 airing June 19 on Lifetime! Today, Josh Berman will be answering more fan questions about the show. Submit yours in the comments below!
Our Facebook friend, Lindsey P. starts us off with a good one! Lindsey asks Josh: "How much fun is it working with your crew?! Brooke, Jackson, Ben, Kate, Margret, April?! They seem like a crazy fun bunch!" Editor's Note: OMG, right? Best coworkers ever or what?
Josh Dishes: "I've been writing television for 14 years and this is the greatest group of actors I've had the pleasure of writing for. They all love the show and get excited about each new script. They're all extremely close in real life and have great respect for each other. It's a joy to be around them and I miss them when we're not in production."
Aww, we all miss them when they're not on our TV screens so I can only imagine what it's like if you actually get to hang out with them! Another Facebook Diva brings us back to Season 1 for a sec... and makes our heart thump for our ultimate "Drop Dead Diva" crush. Heaven-Leigh Angel asks Josh: "Why did you decide to send Fred back after his first date with Stacy, and wipe everyone's memories?"
Josh Dishes: "That's a complicated question. The actor who plays Fred was not originally conceived to be a series regular. However, we loved him so much that we wanted to keep him. He had some other commitments and wasn't able to be with us for the full season. However, we now have him full time and he's not going anywhere anytime soon. In real-life, the actor who plays Fred, Ben Feldman, is one of the most talented comedians I've had the pleasure to work with. His enthusiasm is contagious."
Your turn to dish: What questions do you have for Josh? Write them below and he just might answer them in next week's Diva Dish!
