Sean Maher cast in new Lifetime project. The new show is called "Drop Dead Diva".

Really? Sorry. No one could make me even consider watching Lifetime.
A little dubious about Lifetime too, but I'm excited we're getting news about Sean!
I've been waiting to hear about him for ages now. I'm glad he's got something new at hand.
It sounds like it was bought by Fox originally. Do they own Lifetime?

Here's an afterellen blog agout it: AfterEllen
Do Diva's drop dead? I'm in. ;) Plus, Sean Maher and his pretty pretty eyebrows. (And the rest of him.)
Thanks for the link, kazzmere.
But yeah, I'll watch anything for Sean. Even saw that made for tv movie, Wedding Wars, just for him. But that was worth it to see him kiss John Stamos. (I'm just saying.)
So I guess we can finally retire the Sean is chained up in Joss' basement meme.
I thoroughly enjoy some of Lifetime's original series. I'm looking forward to checking this out.
Off-hand and without looking it up* I think Lifetime is part of the Mouse, not the Fox.

* I don't know where the info is on what conglomerate owns which cable channel. Otherwise I'd be looking upa lot there. But they're all tehcnically separate "companies" so it's always hird to find.
According to our friends at Wikipedia:

Lifetime Television is an American television network devoted to movies, sitcoms and dramas, all of which are either geared toward women or feature women in lead roles. The network is owned by Lifetime Entertainment Services which is a joint venture between The Walt Disney Company and Hearst Corporation.

Also Sean's second project for Lifetime what I remember.
zeitgeist:Thanks. Since hearst is I thinks till msotly print and (with Orson welles dead) has no animal symbol, I'll stick with "part of the Mouse" for which again I'm grateful.

In 1998, Lifetime and ESPN were part of the in-room TV feed at Disneyworld along with 2 or 3 Disney-themed channels, the local broadcast stations in Orlando, and the only other thing available was WTBS.

I wonder what this show is going to define as "fat" anyway? Maybe (start sarcasm font) Amber could get a guest shot as her (the real body, not the model) best friend from childhood (end sarcasm font).

Hearst Corporation is one of the largest diversified communications companies in the world. Its major interests include 16 daily and 49 weekly newspapers, including the Houston Chronicle, San Francisco Chronicle and Albany Times Union; as well as interests in an additional 43 daily and 72 non-daily newspapers owned by MediaNews Group, which include the Denver Post and Salt Lake Tribune; nearly 200 magazines around the world, including Cosmopolitan and O, The Oprah Magazine; 28 television stations through Hearst-Argyle Television which reach a combined 18% of U.S. viewers; ownership in leading cable networks, including Lifetime Television, A&E Television Networks, The History Channel and ESPN; as well as business publishing, Internet businesses, television production, newspaper features distribution and real estate.
