Tony Award winner Liza Minnelli and Broadway and television star Delta Burke will guest star on the Sunday, September 20 edition of Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva, starring Brooke Elliott, Margaret Cho, and Kate Levering. The guest stars will play a pair of sisters who sue each other.

In the show, Elliott plays a shallow model-in-training who dies in a sudden accident only to find her soul resurfacing in the body of Jane Bingham, a brilliant, thoughtful and plus-size attorney. Cho plays her assistant, and Levering plays another lawyer at Jane's firm. The series was recently renewed for a second season.

In related news, Minnelli is scheduled to play the Hollywood Theatre at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, September 25- October 1, where some of her shows will be taped for public television and DVD distribution, according to Variety. She will perform selections from her Broadway show Liza's at the Palace, which includes many of her well-known hits such as Cabaret," "Some People" and her signature song "Theme from New York, New York."
