Outspoken feminist Julia Sugarbaker runs a design firm out of her Atlanta home, along with her shallow ex-beauty queen sister, Suzanne, divorced mother Mary Jo, and, naive country girl Charlene. Black ex-con Anthony helps deliver furniture for the business and voices his unique opinion on whatever the women are discussing. Episodes typically revolved around the work, personal, and love lives of these four women.Written by
Of the twenty-five series the major networks debuted in 1986, this show was the only one to still be on the air for the 1992-1993 season. See more »
In several episodes the characters reference going to the fast-food restaurant Carl's Jr. There are no Carl's Jr. restaurants in the Southeast. In this region they have always been Hardee's. See more »
Did you hear that? The lights went out in Georgia.
The show was one of a kind for every reason.
Dixie Carter, Delta Burke, Jan Hooks, Alice Ghostley, Annie Potts, Meshach Taylor, Jean Smart, Judith Ivey etc, were all amazing in the series. The show promoted not only Dixie Carter's on screen presence as a comedic actress but her legacy for her "Terminator" rants and her characters no-non-sense style of dealing with people. Jean's character Charlene needing to know everything, Annie's Mary Jo wanting the best for her children, and even Delta's character Suzanne for providing us with hours of laughter.
Even with what happened behind the scenes, the show remained popular, the first 5 seasons will always be my favourite, with how the characters grew, and even when Delta and Jean left the show tried and even managed to go on for two more seasons, and they never gave up hope.
And with talk now that Designing Women is getting a possible reboot, I hope it can do the original justice. I hope we see how Sugarbakers survived and who runs it now.
So, if you haven't had the chance make sure you catch a few episodes, because its iconic.
