Paula Abdul is going to shake-up Lifetime.
Paula has signed on to play a fictionalized version of herself on Lifetime’s upcoming drama series, Drop Dead Diva.
The American Idol judge will don a robe and play a court judge in one episode of the series, which stars Brooke Elliott as a former skinny model who dies and wakes up in the body of a plus-sized attorney named Jane.
Judge Paula, or “Your Honor Paula Abdul,” appears in a dream sequence.
Judge Paula will do what the Idol judge does best, inspiring confidence in Jane to continue on in her legal pursuits.
Paula isn’t the only star to appear on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva. Rosie O’Donnell is a part of several episodes.
Margaret Cho also stars in the series.
“Drop Dead Diva” premieres Sunday July 12 at 9 PM on Lifetime.
