After a fatal car crash, aspiring model Deb Dobkins (Brooke D'Orsay) finds herself in the anteroom of heaven where gatekeeper angels sit in front of computers to assess the lives of the dearly departed. Deb's guardian angel, Fred (Ben Feldman), declares Deb a zero/zero, meaning she did neither bad nor good works during her life. While Fred ponders what to do with shallow Deb, she indignantly hits a computer key that catapults her back to Earth. Elsewhere, a gunshot fatally wounds an attorney, Jane Bingum (Brooke Elliott), when she steps in front of the bullet intended for her boss. At the hospital, Jane goes into cardiac arrest, and because hers is the most recently vacated vessel, Deb ends up in Jane's plus-sized body. After Deb's illicit return to Earth, Fred is assigned to Deb as her guardian angel and must live as a human to keep close tabs on her. Deb retains her own memories, but has none of Jane's (memories remain with the soul). When Jane returns to the office confused, her assistant, Teri Lee (Margaret Cho), thinks Jane has amnesia due to her injury and obligingly reminds Jane about her cases, scheduled appointments, work habits and wardrobe preferences. Deb's best friend, Stacy Barrett (April Bowlby), is a sweet and likable airhead who quickly accepts Deb's new appearance. Like Deb, Jane's plus-sized body initially shocks Stacy. As she adjusts to Deb as Jane, she learns to appreciate people less for their appearance and more for who they are. Jane's body may be the exact opposite of everything Deb strives for and admires, but Jane's above-average brains and her inclination to help people exhilarates Deb. As Deb takes ownership of Jane's body, bland Jane appears to begin to appreciate fashion and makeup, and skinny Deb begins to enjoy doughnuts and law. The firm coincidentally hires attorney Grayson Kent (Jackson Hurst), Deb's fianc
