Ex-Eastwick charmer Jaime Ray Newman is bringing her magic touch to Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva via a major season 2 arc, sources confirm.
Newman will play an accomplished lawyer from a rival law firm who possesses a killer instinct.
In other Drop Dead second-season casting news, Gilmore Girls alum Emily Kuroda (a.k.a. Mrs. Kim!) has been cast as the mother of Margaret Cho’s character, Teri. Additionally, Robin Givens will play a mean-spirited cosmetics lab exec who accuses Jane’s (Brooke Elliott) client of wrongdoing.
DDD’s second season premieres on June 6.
