When Big Guy Beck dies, the heirs to his estate are given a stipulation (via a pre-recorded video will) before they inherit his wealth. They have to live with Big Guy's illigitimate son, Wild Bill Westchester and his wife Bootsie, and they have to learn to accept the Westchesters as their own family. Of course, this does not bode well with the snooty Becks, and petty rivalries and catfights soon ensue in this sitcom spoof of '80s primetime dramas. Written by
I thought Filthy Rick was the beginning of a great pairing with Linda Bloodworth Thomason, Delta Burke and Dixie Carter. I've always thought that anything Dixie Carter did was golden, and she delivered here as the vile Carlotta Beck! :) Carlotta was classy but she was so bent of doing in the Westchesters and she was fantastic! :)
And naturally that set her up as the indomitable head of the Sugarbaker Design Firm on Designing Women.
Delta's portrayal of Kathleen Beck was the beginning of who would become the one and only Suzanne Sugarbaker! :)
And Nedra Volz, (Mother B) was also making an appearance on Designing Women when she played the mother of one of the bone-headed construction workers who were insulting and humiliating the women! :)
