CSI: Crime Scene Investigation creator Josh Berman has just sold his latest project to Fox television. According to Variety, the show, entitled Drop Dead Diva, will be a one-hour legal drama.

The series, which will have some comedic overtones, follows the adventures of a beautiful model-in-training who dies only to come back in the form of an overweight, fugly female attorney.

Berman claims, "It's about deconstructing the beauty myth while discovering what's really important in life. This show brings me back to my comedic roots, and as a former lawyer, I look forward to exploring this arena."

The series will most likely premier sometime in 2008.
