“Drop Dead Diva” Exclusive Clip: Margaret Cho In The Slammer

2 May 2014 7:02 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Margaret Cho doesn’t get too many chances to sing on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva… but this Sunday she gets to cut loose.

The episode finds Cho’s Teri in jail. (In case you missed it, she impersonated a lawyer a few episodes back, which is a tad illegal.) She makes the best of a bad situation by strumming her guitar and bringing the power of song to her fellow cellmates. Also, she accepts “cigarettes and chocolate in lieu of applause”.

In the exclusive clip sent over by Lifetime, Teri gets a visit from Jane (Brooke Elliott) but Teri is more concerned about her upcoming jail number from a beloved Broadway musical.

Also in the episode, Jane let’s that the “L” word slip after spending the night with Grayson (Jackson Hurst) and Kim (Kate Levering) enlists Stacy (April Bowlby) to take care of her baby.

But where’s our sexy angel, »
